Welcome to Mr. Messner's Homepage!
Thank you for looking at my website, and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I hope everyone had a restful but adventurous summer. I am excited to be back and cannot wait to start the new school year. This year I will be co-teaching 5th grade math with Mr. Duong. As you may know, each student’s needs are unique. Their needs may be similar or very different from another child's needs. I am eager to work with each of them, and I hope to provide them with the tools they need to have a successful year. I can't do that alone…So parents and guardians, I’m asking you to help me become a partner with you in your child’s education this year. I would like to make the expectations and communications between home and school unified and balanced.
My goal is to create a caring and safe classroom environment for your child and his/her classmates this year. When your child feels liked, accepted, and valued, the learning will naturally follow. Please help me to be the best teacher I can be for your unique child by taking some time to write a letter to me with as much information that you would like to share about your child’s interests, talents, hobbies, and even school-related avoidances. Please also fill me in on your child’s weekly commitments outside of school.
Your letter may be handwritten or in the form of an email. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I appreciate hearing from you in any form that is most comfortable and convenient for you. Thank you for your time and partnership! I look forward to meeting you soon!
