7th Grade Math
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the new school year. I am so excited to have your child in my class. My name is Jocelyn Olandag and I’m looking forward to teaching Math to 7th graders at Long Middle School. You can count on me to provide the students with a safe, enriching and fun learning experience.
I taught Math in the Philippines for the past 14 years. I might use different strategies and methods than you are used to, however, I will be following all of the school’s curriculum guidelines and standards. I am fluent in English, however, I do have a slight accent that may require a period of adjustment.
I am proud to be a part of a cultural exchange program in the United States. I look forward to the opportunity, not only to teach my students Math but also to share my culture with the school community. We will be participating in cross cultural exchange activities which may include virtual meetings with students from my country. As an international teacher, I want to have an impact on my students by preparing them for a global society.
Your child’s success is very important to me. I want them to get the most out of my class. Please feel free to talk to me about any concerns you may have. I value your partnership in your child’s education and look forward connecting with you. You can reach me by email or the school’s phone number:
(843) 921-1010 extension 1111
I look forward to an amazing school year!
