Mrs. Wiesner's Class


Cyclone Core 7th Grade Social Studies         Mrs. Maria Wiesner

Welcome to the Cyclone Core and 7th Grade Social Studies! I am a veteran teacher of over 25 years with experience teaching Social Studies, Language Arts, Reading, Technology, and grades 1-12. I have lived in multiple states - including Missouri, New York, Illinois, California, and of course, Colorado. I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education and my Masters Degree is a Specialist in Reading. I am a proud Kangaroo from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.  Lessons will be engaging and informative and I always am thinking of how students feel when they are in the classroom! I want your student to be successful and learn skills and comprehension strategies that will serve them in all classes with a history backdrop.

I like hands-on learning and we will use many manipulatives and technology to learn about mostly the Eastern Hemisphere throughout many time periods. Middle Ages, Japan, Rome, Greece, mapping, simulations, presentations, and much, much more! In our Social Studies department, we like to have fun and learn about the past.   I am a mother of 4 and have been happily married for about 29 years! My kids are all older, but I love seeing them as often as possible.  Most of them are in college and all have jobs so we are a busy household. I love to travel and have been many places in the world. My latest travels landed me in the southern part of the United States. I visited Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama and North Carolina! I ate grits and alligator! I have 2 wonderful puppies named CJ and Lacey.

With credentials in 7-12 Language Arts, 7-12  Social Studies, K to Adult Reading Specialist, Educational Technology and K to 6  Elementary Education.  I have been teaching over 25 years.  Experienced with students in Special Ed, ELL and Gifted. I have a Masters in Reading and have experience teaching grades 1 3,4,5,6,7 8, 9-12.
