Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Wendy Raffaldt
I am a Kindergarten teacher at Winecoff. This will be my 34th 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. She has a son named McConnor who is in 5th grade here at Winecoff. Victoria got married this past November to Brian and he has a son named Colton. Andrew is a sophomore at UNCC studying Exercise Science. I enjoy watching the boys play baseball, 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! So excited to be a part of the Dual Immersion class again this year! This will be my 4th 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"!
