Syllabus for Ms.C’s

Greetings! My name is Ms. C and I’m thrilled to be teaching Texas History in Rio Grande City this fall! I know that we will all have a very successful year, provided that you as students can sit quietly, raise your hands at every question and pass the state standards with flying colors. However, considering that there isn’t a stray dog’s chance on a highway that you as pubescent, hormonal preteens would be little angels, let’s get down to business.

This year is going to be make me want to tear my hair out at points, and you all may want to jump out the window and swim across the river out back TO Mexico, but we can get through it. And at the end, it will all be worth it.

Welcome to 7th Grade Texas History, Yankee style.

Is this too harsh for a start of the year letter? What do you think?
