Dear Parents,

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Cody Duong.

I earned my degree in Education with an emphasis in multiple subjects. Since then, in addition to my day job with the kids, I've been a coach for young students in my school. I love teaching and am constantly looking for new ways to challenge the students.  I just wanted to tell you a little bit about myself and share with you my expectations as well as my excitement for this school year.

Please know that I understand the importance of preparing our students for the rigors of college. It is my goal to provide engaging instruction that challenging critical thinking skills, fosters  intelligent discussion, and develops logical thinking skills for every student - college bound.

I have very high expectations and standards that I will express clearly to each student, and I am absolutely committed to providing my students with the best education of their lives. I also believe that communication with parents is crucial to a successful year, and that honest communication can head off issues before they develop. Know that I am here with an open mind and a willingness to listen to any concerns that might arise throughout the year. If you don't understand a grade that was given, or an expectation stated, call or email me, I'd be happy to talk with you . My school email address is provided at the top of this message.

My curriculum has a heavy emphasis on developing logical discussion in all areas. Thoughtful discussion will be graded in my class, and the various forms of essay will be perfected. I expect my students to be on time, and to be prepared for the day's activities and discussions. Please communicate with me your thoughts,questions and concerns. I am in your child's life every day; it's my goal to make a powerful and positive impact, so let's work together to make that happen. I can promise you the best of myself for your son or daughter, each and every day. I look forward to meeting you at parent/teacher conferences.

Sincerely,

Cody Duong
