Dear Parents,
       I welcome you and your child to a new academic school year! My name is Elaine Leija; I am a math resource teacher. I am very enthusiastic about teaching your child math this year. My goals are to help your child improve their academic skills while becoming more confident about their work. Please feel free to contact me at any time in order to discuss the syllabus or to address any other questions or concerns that you may have.

       With your support together we can make a difference in your child’s education. Please help me by encouraging and expecting the best from your child including completing and returning homework assignments. I am attaching a Remind page with instructions to sign up for messages. It can be used to communicate with me, and it will also help to keep you informed about homework and tests. Your support is vital to reach our goals. This year, the student handbook is accessible on-line.
