Mrs. Christina Chapan
Hello, my name is Mrs. Christina Chapan. I am one of the special education teacher at Illinois and excited about the new school year. This is my twenty-ninth year teaching and I have taught from preschool through high school. I have been a part of the Matteson 162 family for the last fourteen years. This summer I had the wonderful opportunity to get my gold certification for Whole Brain Teaching. I am excited to use methods that allow kids to move, talk, listen and work with each other every day.
Despite our starting school in remote I am still more passionate than ever to help your child grow. As a certified staff for Whole Brain Teaching I have spent the summer preparing for remote and hybrid learning trying out many of their engaging and new techniques. My email is on the end of this letter. Feel free to call the office and I promise to get back to you during the week by the next school day.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to a fun and productive year for your child.
I have also included some helpful websites we are working on daily in the classroom to encourage math and reading comprehension and fluency. This will greatly help your child as they develop in their current IEP skills. At times I may use these websites as part of their homework. Please let me know if this is a problem or you do not have internet access and I will assign similar assignments. The instructions for your specific student is included in the packet. Please send me a request on your email to join the Remind App. I have also sent a request via your email as well.
