Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to extend to you and your child the warmest welcome into my classroom. My name is Inga Webster and I will be your child’s Russian language and Social Studies teacher this year. This will be my fourth year working at Baltimore International Academy and my fifth year of teaching Middle School Russian Immersion and Social Studies, although I have 15+ years of experience as an educator.I am originally from Russian Federation where I taught Foreign Languages and Pedagogy at a university for 11 years. I love teaching languages and to see my students growing academically and personally. My educational background includes a Masters Degree in Foreign Languages and Education and Advanced Professional Certificate from Maryland State Department of Education in World Languages: Russian PreK-12.This is my second year teaching Middle school at BIA. I had the pleasure to work with most of my students last year, and to collaborate with them through the Russian immersion activities. I am looking forward to getting to know you and working with your child and to share my knowledge of Russian Language and Culture.My philosophy for learning is that each child can be successful in school, and each child learns in a unique way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help our students to discover their strengths and work alongside with them to maximize their academic and personal potential. I believe in creativity, critical thinking, and hands- on experience. I also believe that students greatly benefit from partnership and collaboration between teachers and parents. I will be sending home information to keep you updated with tests, projects and all the classroom’s activities. To better communicate with you, please complete the attached parent contact sheet with updated information.
Please, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me. You can reach me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 410-426-3650.Thank you for your consideration.Inga WebsterMiddle School Russian Language and Social Studies Teacher
