February 4, 2013 Dear Parent or Guardian, My name is Jennifer VanderSlik and I am a student teacher in your son or daughter’s English

11 class at Greenville High School. I’d like to take a moment to briefly introduce myself. I currently attend Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, MI, where I am an English major and speech/communication minor. I am also seeking certification in secondary education. Before attending Aquinas, I graduated from Montcalm Community College, where I received an Associate of Liberal Studies. In addition to being a student at MCC, I have held multiple positions in their Student Success Center which I feel have helped to prepare me to effectively teach your son or daughter. I look forward to not only teaching him or her, but learning from him or her as well. It is my belief that lines of communication must always remain open in order for education to be truly effective. As such, I would like to encourage you to feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns. You can do so by calling 225-1000 ext. 8115 or emailing me at vanderslikj@gpsmi.us. As always, you can also contact Beth Nelson—my cooperating teacher and your child’s English 11 teacher—using the number above or emailing her at nelsonb@greenville.k12.mi.us. In addition to taking a moment to introduce myself, I am also writing this letter to ask for permission to use your son or daughter’s picture to document my student teaching experience. As part of my student teaching experience, I have been asked to take pictures of myself teaching to be used in a slide show for the Aquinas School of Education Convocation in May. I would also like to ask for the ability to use these pictures as part of my teaching portfolio and any other documents useful in the job search process (such as a brochure). Please fill out the permission slip enclosed with this letter to express your wishes regarding the use of your son or daughter’s picture and return it via him or her as soon as possible. Thank you for your time!

Jennifer L. VanderSlik
