My name is Jessie Weitzel (White-zl) and I am very excited to be your teacher this year. This is my first year teaching at Sandy Grade! I taught art for seven years and second grade for one year before coming to Sandy Grade. I have a Master’s degree in teaching and an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) teaching endorsement from Marylhurst University. In my free time, I love making art, reading, exploring nature and spending time with my family, fiancé, cat (Lucille) and two guinea pigs (Cub and Toupee). I look forward to partnering with our families at Sandy Grade as we set out on a new year of fun and learning!
