My name is Marcia Woods-Weisman (Ms. Weisman) and this will be my 7th year at St. Anthony Park Elementary. I have been a teacher for 24 years with this being my 11th 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 a 13 year old son, Joseph, who is a 7th 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 year Joseph had his Bar Mitzvah which was a very special event including lots of hard work on his part and a celebration with friends and family.
This summer, I taught 2nd grade at summer school at Chelsea Heights. I also had a big adventure traveling with my family to Ohio for my nephew’s wedding and then going on a multi-state Amusement Park Tour inspired by son Joseph. We visited Cedar Point, Kings Island, Holiday World, Great America, Valley Fair, Nickelodeon Universe and the Ramsey County and Minnesota State Fairs. Joseph loves Roller Coasters and rides and he even got me to try some pretty intense ones as well! We even snuck in more visits with family in Wisconsin and Chicago. And despite all the travel, I was able to grow and make pickles and tomato sauce! It was a busy summer!
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,
