Mrs. Weimer

First Grade

My husband and I moved to Utah in 2005 with our children. I am originally from Western Kentucky near Fort Campbell. My B.S. degree in early childhood education was earned at Murray State University with teaching certifications, grades K-8, in Kentucky and Tennessee. I have over eleven years teaching experience in public and private schools in Kentucky and Tennessee. In addition, I have twenty-one years of cumulative experience teaching and supervising learning disabled students in an after-school tutorial program. I also have 6 years of experience in a private home school environment teaching six children in grades 1 through 7.

I graduated from the University of Phoenix in October, 2006 with a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction and have taught at Ranches Academy since 2005.  I have my Level 1 Endorsement in Reading. I  am LETRS certified. This is a training that teaches best practices using the Science of Reading. I also have most of my Orton Gillingham training which is the research that the Science of Reading is based on.

I believe the primary purpose of education is to prepare our children to be successful, well-educated, analytical assets to society. As a teacher, I feel it is my duty to give them the foundation of information and then give them the resources to learn how to connect the information and begin to think and analyze on their own. I believe we are partners in your child’s education and I am looking forward to working with you in the coming months. First grade is a wonderful, fun year in which your child will learn many new things. As partners we can make this a great year. Thank you in advance for giving me this chance to spend the coming months with your child.

Mrs. Weimer has a level 2 teaching license and has met the requirements of a highly qualified educator.
