Welcome to the start of your child’s grade 7 school year! My name is Steve Fischer. I am your child’s Learning Support Specialist. This is my first year at International School Manila. Previously I taught students with a wide-range of learning support needs for over ten years in Chicago Public Schools.
I am very excited to be joining the Middle School Team and the larger community here at ISM and working with your child.
Seventh grade is an important year. Students develop independent as well as collaborative skills in all their classes. They begin to set academic goals for themselves and create action plans to reach them. They also learn essential organization and self-reflection skills; both are key to their short and long-term academic successes.
As the grade 7 Learning Support Specialist, I am here to help your child meet these challenges.
Next Tuesday, September 3, we will have rescheduled our Middle School Back to School/ Open House Night from 5:00 till 7:00 . I do hope you can attend. I look forward to meeting with you then and sharing more information about our Learning Support program at ISM.
Also, please make sure that your child brings all necessary supplies to school everyday.
Feel free to contact me at any time should you have any questions or concerns. I am available by email (Fischers@ismanila.org), or to meet in person.
