Hello, my name is Rebecca Weiss!! I am originally from Chicago, Illinois but moved here to St. Louis about 6 years ago. While growing up in Chicago, I attended Lane Tech, a Chicago Public School. Then, I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. Currently, I am nearly finished obtaining my Master's in Gifted Educaiton from Lindenwood University after receiving my Gifted Certification.
My previous teaching experiences include 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 fiance, Tony. Together we have an orangish cat named Atticus (although my family calls him Fatticus because he is a little chunky).
Although the beginning of this school year is going to look and be completely different than previous years, I believe it is very important to work together as a classroom family. We will be spending a lot of time (virtually) 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 their own 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, text, Dojo message, or email.
