Welcome Sunny Valley Elementary School Parents and Gaurdians!
My name is Ms. Elaina Villa and I will be your child's 3rd grade teacher. A little about me, I am a recent graduate of Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois, with a bachlors degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education. I am a new teacher to Sunny Valley Elementary and am very excited to start. I am looking forward to working with your children and hope to meet all of you in the near future.
My philosophy: I believe the goal of education is to encourage children to be lifelong learners while preparing them for the future. I feel that education is a continuous process that does not stop inside the classroom. Furthermore, I feel it is my job as a teacher to bestow knowledge to my students, but to also inspire them to learn independently and beyond the classroom. Everyone needs a good base to progress in society and that starts with the development of a strong education which I strive to provide.
With that said, I am extremely excited about starting the new school year andbecoming a partner with you in your child's educaiton! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via school e-mail or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org or (555) 555-5555. I look forward to hearing from you!
