Greetings, Parents/Guardians and Students:


I am Ms. Lehman, the 6th, 7th, 8th Grade Science teacher.  I am looking forward to partnering with you and your child this year.  Your child will grow and learn a lot this year and I feel honored to be a part of that process.


Some of you know me already, but in case you don’t, here is just a little about me, I am originally from Detroit, Michigan, but I have lived in Chicago for 20 years.  I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Michigan and then earned my Master’s Degree in Teaching from the University of Chicago. I look forward to helping your child to grow as a scientist, inventor, thinker, creator, reader, and writer so that they are prepared for higher grades, high school, college and career.  I have very high expectations for your child because I want them to have the best in life. I believe your child is the best, so they deserve the best, therefore they should always give their best.


In middle school students are expected to be more independent in preparation for high school.  Therefore, responsibility will be placed on students to be prepared everyday, take responsibility for all of their assignments even if they are absent, be aware of their own learning and understanding and ask questions, and be responsible for their choices and decisions.  


I would love to know more about your child.  Feel free to send me a note or an email about: What is your child is like? What they are interested in? How do you see your child a learner and a person?  What do you feel is important for me to know about your child?


On Tuesday, September 3rd your child will bring home 3 forms from me (in addition to other forms from the school).  These forms are: 1. a syllabus, 2. a computer agreement, 3. A lab agreement. Please review all 3 as well as any other forms sent home. Complete them and return them by Friday, September 6th. Additionally the Parent Survey should be completed and returned to your child’s homeroom teacher. Finally, please sign up for Remind.com to receive notifications and messages.  Please contact me if you have comments, questions or concerns. I look forward to meeting you very soon. I can be reached at: klehman@cps.edu or you can send me a note.  Thank you.

Sincerely,   Ms. Lehman

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
