Dear Parents and Families,
Welcome to Fourth Grade! As we bid farewell to summer, I hope that you all had a wonderful and restful break with your kids. I am Daniella de los Reyes, and I am very happy to announce that I will be your child’s homeroom teacher this school year!
Before returning to the Philippines, I received my bachelor’s degree in English and Education from Barnard College, Columbia University. Furthermore, I had the privilege of working with students that ranged from Kindergarten to 5th grade at various schools in New York City and Dallas.
This will be my second year at Chinese International School Manila and I look forward to working in partnership with you as we help your child reach his/her academic and personal goals. In preparation for Middle School, the Fourth Graders will have the opportunity to experience team teaching. I will be handling English Language Arts and Social Studies, while my counterpart, Marie Antoinette Roxas, will be in charge of Science and Math. The learning experiences we have lined up for the entire year are designed to pique your child’s interest, foster his/her love for learning and guide their academic, and socio-emotional development as well.
I believe that communication is the key to your child’s success and to a great parent-teacher relationship. I will be coordinating with you closely throughout the year to ensure that we are addressing your child’s specific needs while also creating the right learning environment for them.
I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a note via your child’s diary, or set an appointment through the school office (02 7980011). In addition, if you would like to stay in the loop please visit my class blog at http://cismconnect.org/ddelosreyes/. This blog will include: student work, photos, class events, activities, as well as other pertinent information for Grade 4 families.
Once again, WELCOME TO Fourth Grade, I look forward to a great year together!
