Shalom First Grade Sunday School Students and Families,
I am so happy that I am going to be your first grade Sunday school teacher this year! I cannot wait to show you our classroom, and to share all the wonderful things we will be doing in Sunday school. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and I am looking forward to learning all about you very soon!
I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Boston four years ago to get my Master of Arts in Teaching at Brandeis University. This will be my third year teaching first grade at Temple Israel. During the week, I teach first grade at The Rashi School in Dedham, MA. When I am not teaching, I love to read books, cook, travel, take photographs, sing, swim, teach (!) and spend time with my family and friends. One highlight of this summer was a two week trip to the island of Mallorca in Spain. I ate lots of delicious food and snorkeled in the warm Mediterranean Sea.
First grade Sunday school will be a very exciting year. We will spend a lot of time learning about the Jewish holidays and learn more stories from the Torah. We will also learn about our Jewish community and about Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).
I am both looking forward to working as a team and to being your Sunday school teacher in this wonderful, warm community. Buckle up, because you are headed off for a great adventure!
Lastly, I would like to note a few things:
- A small snack will be provided each Sunday, however, your child may bring his or her own snack. There will be an electronic snack sign up for families to volunteer to bring in a snack during the year.
- Please think about one new thing you learned over the summer and be prepared to share it with our class on the first day!
Please feel free to contact me with any general questions, comments or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to seeing all of you on Sunday, September 20th.
Shanah Tova U’Metukah! (Wishing you a happy and sweet New Year!)
