Hello everyone, my name is Kerrie Wiand. I have been in the district for the past three years as a third and fourth grade teacher at West Point Elementary. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree from Youngstown State University in Early Childhood Education and received my 4th and 5th grade endorsement from Kent State University. Last year I completed my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Kent State University. I have taught elementary students for 5 years and truly enjoy what I do. I enjoy spending my time outdoors walking and gardening. My husband Scott and I live in Boardman, Ohio.
As a teacher I believe all children can learn and I encourage my students to think "outside the box". In the classroom, I like to see students working out problems in groups and having conversations with one another. I believe conversations help to foster enriched learning experiences and give students the opportunity to make real-world connections to topics we are learning in class. Learning doesn't stop at the end of the day but is an on-going process which continues throughout life.
