I am Ashley James and I am honored to be your child’s first grade teacher! I graduated from Auburn University in 2009 and have been with Tarrant City Schools ever since. I love my job and I could not imagine being any other place.
This is a very important year for you and your child. First Grade is the solidifying stage of the early childhood years. I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.
I believe that communication is the key to a great parent-teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can send me a note, write in the agenda book, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or join the REMIND 101 group (text @msjamesfi to 81010). I will also do my part by sending out a newsletter and/or Remind 101 announcements to update you on what we have been doing in class as well as things that are up coming. For individual concerns, I will contact you by phone, agenda book, note home, Remind 101 personal message, or email (if an email address is provided).
Please feel free to participate in your child’s first grade year as much as you are able. Helping hands are always needed. Whether it is reading a story to the class, helping with field trips or class parties, or any other activity that will enrich our classroom experiences.
I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
