My name is Marcia Woods-Weisman (Ms. Weisman) and this will be my 8th year at St. Anthony Park Elementary. I have been a teacher for 25 years with this being my 12th year 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 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 13 animals in my family. My wife (Dylan) and I are both teachers and we have an almost 14 year old son, Joseph, who is an 8th grader at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis. We have a dog named Webster, 3 cats - CC (Cool Cat), Buster Brown and Oakey Bob and 9 fish! We love music, sports, reading, movies and having adventures large and small!
This summer, I taught 1st grade at summer school at Dayton's Bluff Elementary. I also had a big adventure traveling with my family to Israel as a Bar Mitzvah present for our son Joseph from his Grandma Janice. It was a wonderful adventure seeing many historical, archeological and religious sites. We also spent some time in New York city visiting my nephews and with family in Wisconsin at the lake.
I am very excited for this upcoming school year working with all the 3rd graders at SAP! 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,
