My name is Marcia Woods-Weisman (Ms. Weisman) and this will be my 5th year at St. Anthony Park Elementary. I have been a teacher for 22 years with this being my 9th 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.
There are 3 people and 7 animals in my family. My wife and I are both teachers and we have a 10 year old son, Joseph, who will be a 5th grader here at St. Anthony Park as well. We have a dog named Webster and a cat named CC (Cool Cat), and 5 fish! We love music, sports, reading, movies and having adventures large and small!
This summer I taught Summer School at American Indian Magnet Elementary. After that, I spent a lot of time with my family and friends hanging out in the Twin Cities and Wisconsin. We had a nice trip to Milwaukee to see family and we went to "Cranehaven," grandma's place in the country, where we love to swim in her beautiful spring fed lake. This year we also had the "Woods Olympics" there complete with fun and competitions with our large extended family including "Human Hungry Hippo" and "Slip n Slide Kickball" just to name a few of the many events!
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,
