 Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),

 Hello, my name is Mrs. Peterson.  This school year, I have the pleasure of working with your child in my junior English classroom.  I believe that all students can learn, and it is my job to ensure they have opportunities to excel.

Teaching English is my chosen profession because I enjoy teaching the material, making it come alive, and watching the students grow.  I will be implementing a series of rigorous activities and units designed specifically for your child's needs in language arts, and I anticipate this school year to be a positive experience.  In order to ensure a secure learning environment for your child, I will be using specific classroom management strategies and policies, and I will maintain them consistently throughout the year.  My ultimate goal is for your child to accomplish achievement and growth.

If you have any questions regarding your child's progress throughout the year, please fee free to contact me at Smiths Station High School by calling (334)664-4060 between the hours of 08:00-4:00 EST Monday through Friday.  You can also visit me on the Internet at  We will also be communicating via the Remind program so be sure to sign up using the following information:  @cd3kk9.

I am looking forward to a winning year here at the home of the Panthers!




Mrs. Dana Peterson
