Welcome to First Grade! I hope you all had an amazing summer break.
I am Rachel Mendoza and I will be your child’s homeroom teacher this year. This is my first year in Chinese International School Manila and my eleventh year in the profession. I taught Kindergarten in Xavier School Inc., San Juan City for ten years and have handled several other grade levels including Grade 1, 4 and 5 respectively during clubs and mentoring activities. I graduated Cum Laude at Philippine Normal University holding a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education degree.
I am very excited to have your child in my class. I am looking forward to our partnership as we develop in your child creative, critical and reflective thinking to enforce open-mindedness and confidence in achieving greater goals in life. This year will be filled with many fun, engaging and collaborative activities that will foster the values mentioned above.
On the following pages are a few general guidelines for the Grade 1 – RM Class, as well as the class schedule.
I believe that communication is the key to your child’s success and to a great parent-teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a note via your child’s homework notebook, or set an appointment through the school office (at 02 7980011). I look forward to meeting you and working with you in ensuring your child’s success this year.
