Welcome to Fifth Grade! 
My name is Wendy Weiss and am very excited to have your child in my class.

My primary goal this year is to help each child reach his or her learning goals. I will provide a safe and inspiring learning environment that encourages active participation of each student. Children will learn as they observe, explore, read, write, and interact with one another. This will be a year filled with exciting and challenging learning opportunities!

I have a degree in Elementary Education from the College of St. Benedict and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix. I have been teaching in Douglas County for 10 years; three in 5th grade and seven in 6th grade.  I was also the Apple Award representative for Rock Ridge during the 2015-16 school year.

As a balanced IB teacher, I enjoy many outside activities. I am a proud parent of 3 wonderful children and can often be found attending their sporting or academic events. In addition I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, and chocolate... of course!
