Miss DaMommio's Texas History

Parent Newsletter - Introduction 2013

Dear Texas History students and parents,

I could not be more excited about our year together! This year we will be learning about the geography, history, government, and economy of the great state of Texas and correlations with U.S geography, history, government, and economy. I strongly believe in meeting students where they are and setting goals that will push you to give your best effort and think on a higher level. Our class will be challenging and exciting – I expect you to come into class each day with a positive attitude and high expectations for yourself and for me as your teacher!



Sincerely,

Miss DaMommio
