Welcome Letter

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am Bill Britton and I am student teaching in your child’s class this semester. I am a student at Francis Marion University and my major is in Middle Level Education with a concentration in Social Studies and English. I am looking forward to teaching your child in 6th grade Social Studies this semester. This will be a great learning experience for me and hopefully for your child as well. My expectations for this semester is that your child and myself come out with a better understanding of the content I will be teaching, which will be the middle ages, Renaissance era, and the early Americas. I intent to follow the same rules, expectations, and rules that Mrs. Hamilton already has in place, this way I will not interfere with the routines your child has already gotten used to. I am willing to talk to any parents/guardians that may have questions they would like to ask me. You can contact me at wbritton4038@g.fmarion.edu I check my email on a daily basis, and usually three or four times a day, so I should see it if you email me. If you do email me and I haven’t responded please send me another email because I want to make sure I respond to anyone who has questions or concerns. I hoping to hear from everyone at some point just so we can get to know each other and work as a team to help your child’s education any way we can. Thank you so much for your time.
