    Hi everyone,

    I was just hired to teach pre-k and I start on Monday. I was hired late because it turns out that the pre-k teacher before me was terminted due to an incident involving a child and many parents were upset over what happened. I was asked by my boss to write an introduction letter to the parents. What in the world do I write?! Help me please?!

    I would write something about your education history, types of experience (briefly) and how much you look forward to getting to know them and working with their children.

    Don't mention the old teacher, keep it positive, upbeat, and welcoming.

    If you have taught pre-k before you could talk about some exciting ideas you have. Maybe a little on your philosophy or some ideas of working with preschoolers. I agree - upbeat, positive and enthusiastic is the way to go.

    I included a request in my letter for a full change of clothes including underware and socks. I let my parents know when was the best way/time to contact me with questions that they may have.

    Let them know when and how you are available to them (e-mail, phone, drop-off, pick-up, etc.) Tell them you are excited and eager to work with them and their children and grow with them, and you are looking forward to a wonderful, education, and cooperative year ahead. Definitely keep it positive! And let them know you are available to them.

    I startby introducing myself by first and last name, tell them about my education and expereince with children, and a line or two about myself. Then I mention a bit about why I choose to teach young children and how I run a classrooom and what we will be learning about. This is the first page of mySept newlsetter introducing myslef and welcoming them to my classroom

    Welcome to the Discovery Zone. Please allow me a moment to tell you about myself. My name is Peggy Ernst, and I have been at Emmanuel for 10 years. I am certified with the state of New Hampshire as an Early Child Care Development Specialist and studied Early Childhood Education at Granite State College. I have many years experience with children as a parent, foster parent, Sunday school teacher, coach, home daycare provider and special education aide. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, and Water Safety.I have five FEMA certificates and am a member of the Strafford County Community Emergency Response Team. My husband and I have been married for 26 years and have two grown children.

    Pre-K is a world full of wonder and discovery! Throughout the day I hear, "I wonder . . ." and "How do they. . . . ", and "Where do _____ come from" etc. What an exciting place to be! It is such a joy to watch the children as they discover the answers to their questions and develop new skills. I am very excited to have the privilege of being your child's teacher this year. I am looking forward to working together with you to open up a world of new discoveries for your child. I believe children have a natural curiosity and desire to learn, and will provide them with opportunities to build upon the skills they already have and continue to develop new ones. I will try my best to prepare them for Kindergarten; while allowing them the freedom to explore and discover the things they are interested in. The children will have the opportunity to learn through play, skill practice, self exploration, games, music, and hands on activities.


    Please take the time to read through this newsletter. It contains a lot of important information that you need to know in order to help your child have a successful school year. As the teacher I can only do so much. Your child needs you to be well informed about what is happening in our class. Each month you will receive a newsletter and calendar. It is important that you take a few minutes to read these, as they will contain information concerning upcoming events, what new skills we will be working on, field trips, sign ups for special projects, etc. I promise that future newsletters will not be as long as this one!


    We all have the same goal. To make your child's learning experience here at Emmanuel as fun and stress free as possible. I look forward to working with you and your child to make this a wonderful year full of learning, discovery and fun. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please let me know. I will be happy to set up a time to discuss it with you. Thank you for entrusting me with your child's care, and once again . . .


    Welcome
    to the
    Discovery Zone!!

    I send a letter every year. On the letter I talk about my education, my family, teaching experience. I also give out my personal phone number and email for work. I also attach the school supply list at the bottom.
