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 6th year teaching First Grade. My first three years I taught in the Roosevelt School District, in South Phoenix, and I have been here at Gateway Pointe for the last 2 years and am loving it!
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 of three years, Jason, and our two dogs and two cats. We enjoying going to the movies and eating out.
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 or coming into the classroom before school.
