Good afternoon (or morning)! I am a student in the Educational Internship Program at Liberty North High School, and I have been assigned to work with you this year. I am excited to be part of your classroom. I am especially looking forward to ________________.
My first day in your classroom will be Thursday, August 24th. Our schedule on Tuesdays is slightly modified. I will see you from ____ to ____, but on normal days, I will sign in at ___________ and leave your classroom at ______________. On Wednesdays, I will be at LNHS. Would you like me to visit your classroom before August 24th? I can stop by on ________________ at 3:50.
I do have a few questions before I visit Warren Hills, LC, etc. Is there a specific place I should park? Do you prefer that I dress up, or will shorts and jeans be appropriate for your classroom? What will students generally be doing during my placement time? And finally, what is your room number?
I am looking forward to a great year!Thank you,
