Mr. Thomas Weddell
Geisler Middle School
Sixth Grade Social Studies
This is my 21st year of teaching 6th grade, 20th in the Walled Lake School
District. My first 4 years were spent at Hickory Woods, then when the district moved the 6th grade
to the middle school, I followed along with them. I love teaching 6th graders.
My wife(a 2nd grade teacher) and I have been happily married for 18 years and we have
two children(10th grader and 7th grader) and 2 dogs.
My number one leisure activity is spending time outside with my dogs.....my family wanders out
once in awhile. I enjoy riding my 2 Honda Mini Bikes, golfing with my buddies Bubba and Mr.
Spickard, or just being outside.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and Social Science from Michigan State
University, my teaching certification from Aquinas College, and my Masters of
Education from Marygrove College.
I love being in the classroom with my students, challenging them daily, and
watching them grow intellectually and socially. Instilling a sense of pride in their ATTITUDE,
QUALITY, AND EFFORT and seeing the excitement as the kids "get it" is what teaching is all
I look forward to a productive and positive year with my students, making sure they
become advocates for themselves and are more than prepared for 7th grade.
If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail me or give me a call.
Thanks for taking a look!
