My name is Aliza Walas, and I am thrilled to be your child's GATE/Enrichment teacher this year. It's going to be an exciting, engaging, and challenging journey! First and foremost, I wanted to express my gratitude for your continued partnership in your child's education. Your support and involvement in their learning journey are invaluable, and I am truly thankful for it.


I am excited to inform you that this is my 19th year at Todd Hall. I have had the privilege of working with so many wonderful students and families throughout the years, and I am looking forward to building new connections this year. In our GATE classroom, we will be focusing on creating a nurturing environment where your child can grow and thrive. We will be exploring various reading and math concepts, engaging in hands-on activities, and fostering a love for learning. I promise to make this a fantastic learning year for your child, filled with lots of learning, laughter, and fun.


Lastly, I would like to encourage open communication between us. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding your child's education, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. We are a team, and your input is highly valued. Thank you again for entrusting your child's education to me. Together, we can make this a successful and fulfilling school year. I am privileged to be a part of your child's educational journey, and I am excited to watch them grow.
