Reader’s Choice Topic: Open Letter to Your Child’s Teacher

From time to time we will post a discussion topic that has been requested in our online Facebook community. This is the first edition of our “Reader’s Choice” topics and it’s a heavy one, not an easy one… but a topic that is always at the forefront for caregivers of children: PRIMARY SCHOOL EDUCATION.

One of our readers is a primary school teacher. She most recently taught kindergarten in the New York City public school system and will be teaching first grade in the fall. She has been a teacher since 2002 and is very passionate about providing the best education for her students. She became a teacher through the NYC Teaching Fellows Program. This reader happens to also be a very important person in our lives and someone who we rely on to provide us with educational tools for our children. She had a few discussion points centered around primary grades (pre-K to 2nd grade) but we are going to narrow it down to one particular discussion:

FOR GRADES PRE-K TO 2ND GRADE – WHAT ARE THE KEY THINGS THAT YOU EXPECT FROM YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER?

In thinking about this discussion enjoy THIS “Open Letter” written by a parent to his son’s kindergarten teacher.

If you prepared your own Open Letter to your child’s teacher what would it say? 

We look forward to hearing from you!
