Mrs. Maria Wise

Hello Roadrunners, this year is dedicated to all of my Champions. I have a game plan for success and invite you all to join me on our journey. My name is Mrs. Maria Wise and I am so delighted to be a part of the  Rocky River Elementary School family and most importantly being your teacher!  I have spent my entire career working with children and have many years of experience in the field of education. Teaching is my passion and always has been. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Queens University of Charlotte. I am a lifelong learner and really enjoy attending professional development opportunities and taking coursework in higher education. I am a native of North Carolina and live in Charlotte. I am married to a wonderful husband and have 3 awesome children and one amazing grandson.  During my leisure time I enjoy reading, crafting and spending time with family. 

I  eagerly anticipate launching  this year at Rocky River Elementary School where we are RESPONSIBLE, RESPECTFUL, ENGAGED AND SAFE.  We are all Champions and are in this game together. As a third grade teacher, I endeavor to educate, nurture, inspire, and connect with my students. My academic goal is to ensure that each student makes academic growth in all core academic subjects and experiences academic success. My secondary goal is to have my students exhibit Social and Emotional awareness and maintain a postive growth mindset.

I'm looking forward to a positve and productive school year with all of my Champions! I can't wait to learn and grow with you. I anticipate building a warm, peaceflul and safe classroom community and partnership with my families.
