Dear Parents of my Students at Elsinore Elementary,
My name is LynnDee Alexander, and I am the Inclusion Specialist for the 4th and 5th grade team. I am beginning my 23nd year in education. This is my 1st year here in Lake Elsinore School District after spending 3 years in Chino Hills teaching RSP and SDC Math at a Middle School and my last 19 years in Washington State; 10 years at the Middle School Level teaching study skills, Math and English, and 9 years at the High School level at one of the top 500 high schools in the nation- Kentridge High School in Kent, WA. I come from a district in WA with a full one-to-one laptop grant where ALL students 7th through 12th had laptops and student’s classroom instruction was internet and technology based.
Being closer to home has been important to me as I am able to spend more time with my husband and my son (an 8th grader at Terra Cotta MS). We have a very busy life, and I enjoy the work I do to prepare my son with his life beyond HS as I do with your students.
My goal in each of my grade levels is to work with my students to better their academic skills in areas they need and develop learners that persevere. This year I will be co teaching with some of your finest 4th and 5th grade teachers. Our goal is to get them ready for entrance into Middle School and successful in their future as academic and language thinkers.
One of the best ways to get a hold of me is to email me and my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Another way is to message me through my remind Advisory Class (text @asadvisory to the number 81010). If you need to get a hold of me right away, and I have not gotten back to you, please do not hesitate to email me or call me before or after school or leave a message and I will get back to you within 24 hours on my Plan time.
I have strict policies with my students and hold students to a high standard. I do not tolerate disruptions to students’ educational process. If students are disrupting the learning environment of others they will be given opportunities to adjust their choices, move seats, take a break, and if needed spend time in an alternative setting for their education. I have discussed with each and every one of your students the importance of communication with their teachers, the more they communicate the more initiative they will take in their educational success.
Three words that our class will continue to strive to be the BEST at in our time together are the following:
PERSEVERANCE COMMITMENT to QUALITY WORK ETHIC
These words will be very important to the success of your student as they move through their education, attempt to pass their State Assessments and become successful educated citizens of our community. Please most of all encourage your student to be in class EVERY DAY with their work COMPLETED!!!!!
I will look forward to working with you this school year,
