End of the Year Letter to Parents

Amy Crawford
@AmyKCrawford

Every year, I write an End of the School Year letter to parents. This year, I took advantage of the opportunity to share some wisdom I’ve acquired through raising four children and teaching for over 25 years. Admittedly, I was a bit anxious to find out how the letter would be received. Thankfully, I’ve received multiple requests to “share” the letter on social media, as well as notes of appreciation from parents and grandparents. I’d like to share the letter with you in the hope that you will have the courage to share it, modify it, or simply think about the responsibility we have as teachers to educate our students.

``What do you do?” “I teach seventh grade!”     “Oh, bless your heart!” As a middle school teacher, I have that conversation a lot. People imagine middle school to be full of scary, hormonal children. They’re not completely wrong, but they are missing how awesome tweens and teens can be.
