Mrs. Maria Wise-Third Grade
Greetings, my name is Maria Wise and I am so delighted to join Rocky River Elementary School! I currently hold my license as a K-6 educator and have been an active classroom teacher for more than 12 years in the state of North Carolina. I have spent my entire career working with children and have nearly 20 years total experience in the field of education.
I am a native North Carolinian and have spent much of my life living in Charlotte. I am married to a wonderful husband and have 3 beautiful children ages 19, 20, and 24 and one grandson 5. I am an only child and spend much of my time with my mother in my spare time. I absolutely adore my dog Luci who is 9 years old.
Teaching is my passion and always has been. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and my Master's degree from Queens University of Charlotte.
I am eager to launch a new beginning at Rocky River Elementary School. As a third grade teacher, I endeavor to educate, nurture, and connect with my students. My primary goal is to ensure that each student makes academic gains in Reading and Math and is academically successful. My ultimate goal is to have my students exhibit Social and Emotional competence as global citizens who are able to compete acadmically in all arenas.
I'm looking forward to a positve and productive school year. I can't wait to meet each of you. I anticipate building a solid classroom community and partnership with my families.
