Welcome to 2-6 with

Ms. Theglitsa

Hello!
My name is Theglitsa (Theg) and I was born and raised in London. I have been teaching for many years in England and Internationally now and have loved every day of it!
I am looking forward to teaching your child and we are already excited for the year that lies ahead. It's going to be a year full of fun, exploring and growing as a team.
Along with your support, we can work together to make sure that your child enjoys every day in school and loves to learn.
If you wish to contact me, you can use your child's communication book or email theglitsa.demetri@emsdoha.net

Welcome to the 2018/19 Academic School Year

I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he or she:

- Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience.

- Receives healthy snack and lunch and adequate amount of water.

- Sleeps well to get ready for an engaging and exciting learning experience every day!

- Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.

Thank you!
