I am so thrilled to be your child's teacher and I know this will be an awesome year! A quick introduction: my name is Miss Rihn. This will be my 15 year at Medina Valley. I have taught pre-k and kinder. This will be my first year as a first grade teacher. I look forward to the change.
For your child's journey to be successful, it is essential for me to understand that each child is a unique individual with special qualities and needs. With the support of students and families, we will create a classroom environment that will recognize and respect individuality. To support each student's learning, I will create a classroom that offers a variety of meaningful teaching styles so that each child will have the opportunity to succeed. The children will grow and learn at their own rate. I invite you to play an active role in your child's education by talking with your child each day about their learning, reading together every night, and communicating with me.
I want there to be open communication between us. If at anytime you have a question, I will be happy to talk with you. Either, write me a note, give me a call, or email me and I will try to respond as soon as possible. I want you to feel well informed throughout the year. Each day your child will bring home his/her folder. Your child's folder will contain his/her work for the day, notes, and homework. Please check your child's backpack daily for important letters and notes. This may be a hard habit to get started, but well worth it! Thanks in advance!!
Welcome again to a wonderful year!!!
