Dear Family and Friends of Room A157,
Hello and welcome to Northwest Cabarrus STEM Middle School! I want to introduce myself as we begin the new school year. I am Ms. Wheeler, your child’s science teacher. I look forward to building a positive relationship with you and your child!
My home state is Michigan, but for the past four years, I have lived in both Northern California and the United Kingdom. I am really excited to start my journey here at Northwest Cabarrus STEM Middle School! I graduated four and a half years ago from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor of Science degree. My majors at GVSU included Education and Integrated Science with a minor in Elementary Education. In addition to studying at Grand Valley, I taught both seventh and eighth grade science in California and England. I spent time as a lower school science lab teacher and coordinated middle school curriculum in England as well. I enjoy educating children and helping them grow into responsible citizens. Throughout the school year, I will support your child in learning about the wonderful world of science and I hope to learn from your child too!
When I am not educating students in the classroom I enjoy golfing, reading, running, traveling, and spending time outdoors. While living in England, I had the opportunity to explore more of Europe. I was amazed at the beautiful landscape and diverse culture! I also really like spending time with my family and friends back in Michigan!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at Barbara.Wheeler@cabarrus.k12.nc.us. The best time to reach me is either before or after school Monday through Friday. I look forward to the new school year and educating your child about science! Go Titans!
