Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Janelle Wiesner (Wise-ner) and I am so happy to be your child's First Grade teacher this year at Gateway Pointe Elementary! This will be my 8th year teaching First Grade.
A little about me: I graduated from Arizona State University with my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education. Before graduating, I worked for the Boys and Girls Club of greater Scottsdale for 5 years, working with K-6 graders on their education team. I currently live in Mesa, with my husband, son, and our two dogs and two cats.
Communication is so important between home and school! Parents are a child's first teacher. I am just here to guide them though an important year of their academic career. My goal for this year is sure to make sure your child learns to: read, write and solve math problems; but most importantly to make sure they enjoy learning and enjoy their time in First Grade... After all, they will only be in First Grade once! That being said, I am here to support you and your family in any way I can. The best way to reach me is through email.
