Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Wendy Raffaldt
I am a Kindergarten teacher at Winecoff. This will be my 36th year of teaching. I graduated from UNCC with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and K-6 Elementary Education.
I am married with two children and two grandsons. My husband, Randy, owns a dump truck company that keeps us quite busy. Victoria is an RN at CMC-Northeast in the Levine Cancer Center and just finished her Nurse Practioner's Degree. She has a son named McConnor who is in 7th grade at Mt Pleasant Middle School. Victoria is married to Brian and he also has a son named Colton. Andrew is a senior at UNCC studying Exercise Science. He is looking into a perfusionist career. I enjoy watching McConnor play baseball and now football this year, camping, reading and shopping. I LOVE teaching kindergarten and truly feel this is my calling. I am looking forward to a great year with you and your child! I'm so excited to be a part of the Dual Immersion class again this year! This will be my 6th year teaching with Mrs. Baccalini. We make a great team!
Thank you for entrusting your child to us here at Winecoff. I know it will be..."A Year to Remember"!
