Don ‘t you hate when you have those awkward moments when you ask the child who is in foster care to bring in a baby picture, or wonder why a child won’t participate in group work, only to later find out that their grandmother is in the hospital fighting cancer? As teachers, we have a lot of kids to learn about, and quickly at the start of the year. I use this letter as a way to give families the opportunity to help me learn a lot right off the bat. Please feel free to e-mail me if you would like for me to send you this document in word after you have purchased it. firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and I hope it helps you and your kids get to know each other better.
