Dear 2nd Grade Parents – Class of 2017-2018

 Me and my son Caleb.

 My name is Cristiane Tech Idowu. To tell you a little about me, I am originally from Brazil. I speak Spanish and Portuguese, as well as some Yoruba. I have a son, Caleb, 14. He proudly attends Elite Scholars Academy here in Clayton County, and he likes to learn Chinese and play chess. My husband is from Nigeria and besides being a computer technician, he is a translator for the government and wrote a book about his culture.

 I value cultural background, family, faith and, most of all, education. I graduated and have a Bachelor’s degree as well as some graduate work in Social Sciences. I used to teach in college in Brazil, and started my journey back into teaching being a substitute teacher in Henry County, then coming to Clayton County as a Bilingual Family Liaison for the International Center, where I taught student’s parents. I taught 5th, 3rd and 4th grade in Clayton County, and I came to join the WCES this past school year. I am Clayton proud! And please encourage your children to read every day for 30 minutes or more. Also, you can add closed captioning to your tv, so they can read the dialogues and improve comprehension.

We are preparing our children for a global future and for that, using technology is a must! I will make the best to utilize all the available resources provided to us in the classroom.

It is so important to keep communication open between us, so I will be using Class Dojo in the classroom. We will be using the app to send reminders and handle any immediate concerns. This does not replace conferences.  Please let me know if you need any assistance connecting the app.

We look forward to a mid-school year full of new, fun adventures learning and improving together, in a safe and loving environment to keep engaging and growing your child’s knowledge! I would like to remind the parents that the learning process continues at home. Please check the links to Edmodo, StudyJams, ClassDojo for parents and resourceful websites that are available close to this page and helpful for both students and parents. You can contact me through my Google number: 678-379-3717.
