My name is Lindsey and I'm the Miami student that is going to be in your classroom for the next
two weeks. I just wanted to touch base with you before I show up on Monday morning. I just found out today that I'm going to be at ____ High School so I have a few questions. What grades
do you teach? Should I pack a lunch? and What time does school start? I look forward to working with you!
See you Monday.
