My name is Karen Krikorian and I will be one of your child's functional skills this year! I will be teaching your child vocational skills, daily living skills, and job skills that can help them in and out of the classroom. This is my first year teaching, and I look forward to getting to work with all of your children this year. I grew up in a small suburb outside of San Francisco, California, with my mom and younger brother. I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a bachelor’s degree in special education.
During my time as a student teacher, I have become very aware of the impact teachers can have on the lives of their students. As students go through school, they are turned over to the care of their teacher for almost seven hours a day. I have always been a huge supporter of frequent home-school communication. It is my hope that this note will be the basis for a great deal of dialogue and communication between us. We’ll discuss your child, what’s happening in our classroom, ways you can support your child’s learning at home, and ways that I can extend what you do at home into my classroom.
I believe that when a parent and a teacher communicate regularly about a child, the child often has a happier, more successful school year. The more I know about your child, the better I can effectively meet his or her needs in my classroom. This will be an exciting year and my goal is to make this year the best it can be for each student in my class!
Please email me any information you would like me to know about your child as we embark on this incredible school year.
Ms. Karen Krikorian
