Do you all distribute "Meet the Teacher" letters to students on the first day of school? I never thought to write a "Meet the Teacher" letter until a few minutes ago when I saw one on Pintrest. Apparently it's kind of a big thing because I saw a lot of teachers had pinned their letters. Most of them included 1 - 3 photos of themselves. On the one hand it doesn't really seem like my style and I feel a little leery about writing things about my personal life (even minor ones) on a sheet of paper and distributing it to strangers. Also I'd feel weird about parents having a picture of me. I know, I know, they could easily snap a picture of me at school but that's a lot less likely to happen (plus if someone wanted to do something weird with my photo it'd be easier to narrow it down). On the other hand, it seems like a cute idea and as a parent I'd love a letter like that. Plus it may make parents view me as more approachable (double edged sword if I have any hellicopter parents this year) and personable. If I was a first grader, I'd love to learn more about my new teacher and that s/he is an actual, real live person outside of school.
