I am so excited to have your child in my first grade class this year! My name is Dora Vega and I will be your child’s teacher. This is my 18thyear teaching. I have two kids ages 12 and 17 and they both attend public schools in LAUSD. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child.
First Grade is such an exciting time for children, teachers, and parents. We will be laying the foundation for the future and instilling a sense of responsibility that will carry over with them as they continue through the grades. My goal is to use a variety of teaching strategies to help your child reach the first grade learning goals. I believe it is very important for your child to be happy in my class. Please let me know if there is anything I can do you to help your child feel comfortable in school.
Your child will be bringing a folder home daily. This will be one way for us to communicate. You will be able to see what they are learning and how well they are cooperating. Please feel free to contact me by sending a note in the folder or calling the school office at (818) 895-2481. The best way to reach me is through the ClassDojo application in which we can send and receive messages.
Communication is the key to student academic success and to our parent/teacher relationship. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am confident that this will be a great year for all of us!
