Dear Parent or Guardian,

My name is Brad Simon. I want to take the time to introduce myself
and express how glad I am to have the opportunity to work with your
children this semester. I love teaching high school history, because I
feel that if students fail to learn about history they are doomed to
repeat it. I believe that through examining past and present issues,
students will be able to form their own opinions on key events in
history. The main goal of my class this year is to have students
objectively learn about the History of the World from 6000 BCE to
present. Over the course of the year we will learn about the different
periods of time starting with the beginnings of human civilization, and
ending the semester with the Renaissance era.
Additional information about this class is provided in the syllabus
attached to this email. Please read that syllabus, and sign the
detached portion and send that back with your student. By signing the
syllabus you indicate that you understand and support the class
policies and procedures.
If you ever have any comments, questions, or concerns, I am available
for phone calls and meetings every day (by appointment please) each
day before and after school. The best way to reach me is through email
at bmsimon@schools.edu, as I check and respond to email frequently.
Once again I am excited about working with your children. Please dont
be afraid to ask questions or voice comments. Heres to a great School

Dear Principal X,
My name is Brad Simon. I am hoping to be a social studies teacher at
Fake Junior High School. I recently graduated from Arizona State
University with a Dual Bachelors Degree in History and Secondary
Education. I have both my junior and high school certifications to teach
history. I am also qualified to coach in the state of Arizona, having
completed all the necessary coaching requirements. I also have worked
extensively with the National Geographic Bee, having been the Arizona
State representative myself in 2001.
I feel that creating a positive learning environment is critical to the
success of each student. I believe that history should be experienced
and not learned out of the textbook. I will use materials and documents
that not only educate the students, but also allow them to see history
through a perspective lens. I feel that writing skills are critical, and will
work with the English department to help strengthen students writing
skills. I feel that teachers and parents need to be on the same team for
the success of each student.
I am a hardworking person, who is never satisfied. I have a deep love
of history, and plan on sharing that love with the students that I teach.
Helping students become great citizens is just as important to me as
their success with their classwork. I feel that I would be a great asset to
the school, and look forward to hearing from you.
Brad Simon

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Wayne,
Your son Bruce is a great member of our 4th hour World History class
here at Gotham High School. He is very active participant in class, and
his grades are among the top in the class. Bruce has a great
understanding and passion for history that is matched by very few I
have ever taught. Recently, Bruce has been showing up tardy to class.
Gotham High has a policy that is in the course syllabus that states:
Students who arrive to class after the bell, without a pass from a
teacher or staff member, must serve After School Detention. After 10
tardy infractions, a student must serve 1 day of in school suspension
According to my records Bruce has been tardy to my class 7 times in
the past month. Bruce has been tardy on 1/3, 1/5, 1/10, 1/11, 1/12,
1/13 and 1/17. I have warned Bruce of this consequence, and have
encouraged him to be on time. I want Bruce to continue on his upward
progress in my class, and
I know with a little effort he can show up to class on time. If there are
questions please feel free to call or email me.
