Hello, my name is Rebecca Weiss!! I am originally from Chicago, Illinois but moved here to St. Louis about 3 years ago.  While growing up in Chicago, I attended Albert Granis Lane Technical College Preparatory High School (Lane Tech), a Chicago Public School.  I then attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. 

My previous experiences include teaching 5th grade at Fariview Elementary in Jennings, MO and being a STEM Specialist at a St. Louis Charter school.

When I am not teaching, grading papers, or lesson planning, I enjoy reading, watching Netflix, baking or enjoying the outdoors with my boyfriend, Tony.  Together we have an orange cat named Atticus (although my family calls him Fatticus because he is a little chunky.)

I believe it is very important to work together as a classroom family. We will be spending a lot of time together learning and growing so it is important to treat each other with respect, kindness, and compassion.  I know and understand that each child is different and unique in theirown way which means that they may think and learn differently.   As your teacher I will help each student grow as a learner and as a person of good character.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call, email, or stop by my classroom.
