I am so excited about this semester!  Many of your students have been in my class before, but I just wanted to remind you of a few things.  You will notice that I rarely give WRITTEN homework.  That does not mean that my students have no homework!  Their homework each night is to make sure that they study and have mastered what we have done so far.  Many students request practice sheets, while others will make flashcards, for example.  The only outside projects that I give are either culture related or videos/powerpoints that my students create.  I give at least 2 weeks (3 weekends) for them to work on any project that I have assigned.  Please stress to your child that, if they are having trouble with anything, they need to share that with me so that we can work on it together.  I love what I do and my goal is for my students to enjoy learning and mastering the French language. Thank you for sharing your child with me.

Sincerely yours,

Jo Snipes Murphy
