My name is Marcia Woods-Weisman (Ms. Weisman) and this will be my 11th year at St. Anthony Park Elementary. I have been a teacher for 27 years with almost half of that being in St. Paul. I've also taught in Minneapolis, Madison, WI and the suburbs of Chicago. I have been a classroom teacher, a Reading Teacher, a Gifted and Talented teacher, an Enrichment Social Studies/Literacy/Science teacher, a High School Summer School teacher and more! I have worked with a wide range of students at all ability levels and from many different backgrounds and cultures. Third grade is my favorite and the grade I've taught the longest.
There are 3 people and more than 13 animals in my family. My wife (Dylan) and I are both teachers and we have an almost 16 year old son, Joseph, who is a 10th grader at Washburn High School in Minneapolis (where Dylan is an ESL teacher). We have a dog named Webster, 2 cats - CC (Cool Cat), and Oakey Bob and too many fish to count! We love music, sports, reading, movies and having adventures large and small!
This summer, I taught summer school with Ms. Phillips at Washington Tech High School! I taught English Language Arts to 10th graders! The high school kids needed help catching up and I got to try something new! I had fun meeting new kids and seeing what kind of things you all will have to learn in the future!
My family had a mellow summer with a couple of short trips to Wisconsin to go to our family’s lake (Cranehaven -yes there are cranes there), go to a wedding and have a little waterpark fun! We also enjoyed some in town fun including a couple of Twins games! Our garden is doing great and don’t be surprised if you see me eating lots of cherry tomatoes! I’m looking forward to meeting you and hearing about your summer adventures as well.
I am very excited for this upcoming school year! I am also the site coordinator of our 2-5th grade afterschool EDL program, so I enjoy having a chance to get to know lots of SAP kids through that program as well! I love being a part of this community and I look forward to another great school year!
Please feel free to contact me to find out more, tell me about your child and hear about all the great things we will be doing this year! Keep your eyes open for lots of information on our class website as the school year progresses!
Peace and Love,
