I am writing this letter to introduce myself and to inform you of my classroom expectations. My name is Michael Fulling and I will be your child's 8th grade history teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. I am originally from the state of Maine where I taught 9th, 10th, and 11th grade history at Maine Central Institute for 2 years. I moved to California in 2003 and taught 7th and 8th grade history at Orville Wright Middle/Magnet School from 2003-2009. I served as Social Studies Department Chair from 2005-2009 and also served on the Professional Development Team at Orville Wright. I am very excited to begin another year at Paul Revere Charter Middle School. I know we will be starting with virtual learning, however I want to emphasize that this does not change my expectations for each and every student. My attendance policy, work habits and cooperation policies, as well as conduct in the classroom still applies.
In the classroom my expectations for each student are set very high and I will always push for the best from each student. I run a rigorous class and hope the students learn as much as they can from their experience in the classroom. You can keep track of what is going on in class by using Schoology. I post all assignments under your child's period. Schoology will also be the main and only platform for communicating with me and the students. I also will be using Google Classroom to post and receive assignments only. I am looking forward to this year and if you have any questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a message via Schoology.
