The "first day of school" is a great milestone for your child and I understand that you and your child may have met this day with excitement or apprehension (or a little of both).
I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Melinda Whisenant. I began teaching Kindergarten here at Johnson Elementary in 1997. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in elementary education. I have five grown children and currently seven adorable grandchildren.
I am excited to be working with your child this year helping he/her achieve his/her full potential. I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you as much as possible. I encourage you to contact me if your have any questions or concerns. You can send a note with your child, call me at school 472-6806, or email mwhisenant@mpsaz org.
In closing, I would just like to say that I am looking forward to a great year of working with your child!
Melinda Whisenant (Mrs. W,)
