This is a common question I ask myself several times a week. While I have met many new faces in the district, there are still several I haven’t yet met. So, when I get a request for help and the only identifying information is the person’s name, I need a little more information. Where are you located? What department do you work in? What age are your students? Are you a teacher, paraprofessional, secretary, or something else entirely?
Now imagine you are a parent, particularly one with multiple children. Now imagine they’re all in middle or high school and they have several teachers at the same time. You send an email saying they did a great job on a test, or maybe that you’re concerned about their grade. But they have no idea what class you teach because they can’t keep all their kids’ teachers straight.
