What educators are saying

I love using this to get ready for Open House! It is really helping me to get organized and think about what I want my families to know.
I use this in combination with another resource at the beginning of the year for my students and the parents to get to know me.


If you're headed back to school, this Meet the Teacher pack is a must have! Help your students learn about you and your classroom with the contents of this valuable resource. What a great way to build community with your students!

  • Use the editable book templates and slideshow to share fun facts and information about yourself with your students.
  • Use the editable letter templates to introduce yourself to families.
  • Use the editable Open House presentation to familiarize parents with your policies and curriculum.


The editable book makes for a valuable addition to your classroom library. The book was created in portrait orientation. You can edit the pages to meet your needs. Introduce it to your students during the first week of school, and then add it to your collection. Your students will enjoy reading about you all year long.


The editable slideshow is perfect for the first week of school. The slideshow was created in landscape orientation. Simply edit the slides to meet your needs and then project the slideshow as a presentation that your whole class can enjoy. You will share facts about your family, friends, pets, hobbies, and more.

The book and slideshow options include the same content categories. This means that both formats can be used to share the same information. You just have the option of using one or the other. Or both. :)

Meet the Teacher Letter:

You’ll also receive matching Meet the Teacher letter templates. Use them at your Meet and Greet or send them home on the first day. There are color and black/white options included. There are 4 design options (templates) to choose from. Each design option includes 3 color choices. Each of those options comes with a blank version allowing you to add your own titles and headers if the ones included don’t work for you. That’s 24 options to choose from!

Open House Presentation:

Use the BONUS Open House presentation to share important information with families. You could also use it with your own students when covering your expectations, sharing information, and so on, at the beginning of the year. The slideshow is in landscape orientation. These templates were created to match the design and layout found in the Meet the Teacher book and slideshow templates.

The editable book, slideshow, letter templates, and Open House presentation were created for use in PowerPoint. Make sure you have this program installed on your computer prior to purchasing and downloading.

What does editable mean?

The book and slideshow are editable. This means that you can edit the text on each page. More specifically, you can add your own content to each page/slide. You can change the font, the font size, the font color, and so on. You can also add your own images to each page/slide. You cannot change or modify the installed headers.
