Mrs. Chandra Wiebe
I am so excited to be working with you and your child this school year. I taught kindergarten for 11 years at a small private school in Ocala, I was a paraprofessional for 6 years, and this is my fifth year at Stanton-Weirsdale Elementary. I have been married for 12 years. I have one son, who is in third grade this year. When I am not teaching, I enjoy hiking with my family, going to the beach, and baking. I also love Dr. Seuss, as you may have already noticed!
This year our class is a DAP (developmentally appropriate practice) kindergarten class. This approach is what is best for children. It is hands-on learning mixed with purposeful conversation. It is intentional in methods and practice. Students learn from their teachers, but also they learn so much from each other. Learning is fun and engaging while still having high expectations and remaining standards-based.
I have a structured classroom. I am firm but fair. I have high expectations for all of my students. For behavior, I use Class DOJO. Please look for the letter in your child ‘s folder so that you can sign up. This is a great way for us to stay in touch and be on the same page to help your child. Due to Covid-19, I will not send home a daily behavior folder this year so Class DOJO is very important! Please email me, message me on Class DOJO, or call me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year!
