Introducing Yourself to Your Students
Do you introduce yourself to your students before meeting them? Every year, I send a letter telling the students (and their parents) about myself and reminding them about our Meet the Teacher Day. I love sending a letter and every year I get fantastic results. I have found that it makes students feel less anxious about meeting me because they already know what I look like and some facts about me. I have also found that parents tend to use what I wrote as an icebreaker to start a conversation with me.
