I am so excited to be in 3rd grade at Samuelson. Here is a little about me: My husband works at Iowa State at the Bio Century Research Farm. We have 2 kids, Addie and Alex. We also have a dog named Annabelle who is a Cavachon (small, white, & fluffy). I grew up in the Chicago Suburbs and graduated from North Central College in Naperville.
Hello! My name Claire Park and this is my second year in 3rd grade. I am so excited for a year full of learning and fun. I grew up in the Quad Cities, then moved to Iowa City for college (Go Hawks!). At the University of Iowa, I graduated with a BSE in Elementary Education and an endorsement in reading. I am planning to enroll at Drake University to begin my Masters in Culturally Relevant teaching. I am excited to expand my knowledge and grow as a teacher.
I believe creating a space with the student where they feel safe, brave, and supported throughout the year. I want students to feel brave to take risks in their learning so that we can grow together as a classroom. I am so excited to teach and learn alongside every bright mind that walks through my classroom door.
My name is Lisa Weatherall and I am a third grade teacher here at Samuelson. I grew up in St. Marys, Iowa and went to Martensdale St. Marys School. After graduating high school, I attended Iowa State University and earned my degree in elementary education. I attended Graceland University to earn my master’s degree. My husband and I have 3 wonderful children and one very sweet dog.
