Happy Summer! 

We had a great school year and the kids and I are now enjoying a well-deserved break. If you want to see some of our activities from the past year, check out our classroom newsletters.There are lots of pictures and articles about our class. 

I'm looking forward to meeting our new class members in the fall and planning another fun school year. Enjoy the summer break!

About Our Class

Our class theme is: We Are His Hands. We want to be the hands of Jesus, and we look for ways we can learn more about Him and be like Him. We want to share His love with others, so we put on programs at the Quail Run Assisted Living Center, do Bible plays for churches, send out Shoebox care packages at Christmas, take paper products to the Christian Aid Center, and anything else we can think of to be His hands.

In our class, we practice life skills that help us become caring, responsible citizens. We have fun mastering the basics of math, language arts, science, and social studies through the use of our multiple intelligences. Individualized learning plans and challenges are offered to meet the needs of each child. We do projects, experiments, and invite guest speakers to our classroom to enrich our learning experience. We enjoy reading our Bibles, memorizing scripture, and making music.We care about each other as a class family and try to make each member feel valued and special. When we have problems, we talk them over, share ideas and solutions, and work together for a positivie outcome. We show respect to each other and encourage one another. We want our classroom to be a welcoming place for everyone.

Words from Mrs. Wessman

I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance with a 5th year professional certification in elementary education. I have done extra training in Suzuki pedagogy for young children and STEM teaching in the classroom. I find it fascinating to watch kids learn, and to find ways to help each child reach their own unique potential. My hobbies include reading, music, travel, gardening, outreach activities, and environmental issues. I love teaching children and am honored that parents choose to entrust them to me. My number one goal as a teacher is to demonstrate Jesus' love and friendship to my students. My next goal is for our classroom to be a happy, safe, and fun place to learn.
