Thank you for such a wonderful welcome to Adcock Elementary School. I began teaching here in mid-October and it has been a very exciting start filled with wonderful learning experiences. I would like to take this opportunity to officially introduce myself to you as your child’s teacher.
I am originally from Portland, Or. I moved to Las Vegas with my wife in four year old daughter last summer to get out of the rain and also for new adventures. Previously, I taught Kindergarten in Portland Public Schools and Beaverton School District for the last four years. I have also worked in many areas youth development and education. Before teaching, I worked in summer camps and non-profit organizations teaching social and emotional skills to children in impacted communities. My love of learning and teaching brought me back to school and I graduated from Portland State University with Master’s in Education.
I am looking forward to the year ahead and anticipate a year of both academic and social growth. I hope you will also feel welcome to play an active role in helping your child succeed. Your involvement and support do make a difference.
Please feel free to contact me whenever you have any questions. I believe open communication is very important. I am available by email in the evenings and on weekends whenever questions may arise. I am looking forward to finishing the year strong. Let’s work together to make this the best year possible!
Have a great year!
