Meet Ms. Freundlich
Dear First Grade Family,
Hello! My name is Ms. Freundlich and I want to welcome you to our fantastic first grade class. I am excited to be your teacher this year and I can't wait to meet you. Our first day of school will begin on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. On this day we will start building our classroom community and we’ll get to know each other a lot more. I'd like to take this time to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me.
I was born and raised in a small town in Connecticut where I enjoyed playing soccer and basketball. In the hot summers, I loved swimming, canoeing and rope swinging with my little brother. After high school, I attended Keene State College where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. I student-taught in a Vermont multicultural first grade classroom and then later worked with third graders in Middletown, Connecticut.
Nine years ago, I took a trip out West and decided to visit Jackson, Wyoming. I immediately fell in love with the mountains and all the friendly people. After that eye opening trip, I decided that I wanted to live in such a welcoming community. My passion is working with children and I'm thrilled to be starting my 10th year here at Wilson Elementary.
Over the summer, my husband and I welcomed our son to the world. Van was born in July and has stolen our hearts. You'll get to see lots of pictures and I'll even bring the little guy in for you to meet. I've decided to take some time to hang out with my little guy and will join the classroom right before Thanksgiving.
Since I've shared a few things about myself, I'd love to know something special about you! If you could, please draw a picture or write a story about something fun you did this summer. During the first few weeks of school we will share our drawings and stories with our new classmates . I am anxious to meet you and look forward to our first day of school. See you soon!
If possible, please send a list of 3 or 4 wonderful things I should know about your child. You can send it in with your child or email the list to firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com. Within the first few days of school we'll be able to say, "I know something special about you!" Please feel free to include anything else that you'd like us to know about your child.
