Barbara N. Wesneski
Dallas Middle School
I am a 1996 graduate of Bloomsburg University. It is there that I
received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a
Mathematics minor. I also graduated from Wilkes University with a
masters in classroom technology. I found my home here in the Dallas School
District in 1999. My first year here I had the privilege of teaching 3rd
grade at Dallas Elementary. I spent the next five years at DES enjoying the
5th grade students and curriculum. I am in my eighteenth year in the
district and my thirteenth at our beautiful Middle School. I am very excited
about teaching 6th grade at DMS.
Besides being a teacher, I am a full time mom with three beautiful
children (if I may say so myself). My oldest child L.J. is a very sports
minded 18 year old who has been brainwashed to love Notre Dame and
the Yankees. Alexandria is my sweet 14 year old daughter. She is also very
involved in sports (especially basketball and field hockey). She too has
completed all stages of the brainwashing! Joshua is my very pleasant 11 year
old who (no suprise here) loves sports as well. He too has
completed all stages of the brainwashing! All of their first Notre dame
jerseys were "retired" and hang on a wall in our home. The Notre Dame and
Yankees influence comes from my wonderful husband, Larry.
I was the assistant coach of our junior high girls basketball
team from the time I started teaching here at Dallas through the 2005-06
season. We had 3 district titles under our belt in 7 years. Hopefully
another is in the future this season for the girls. I miss coaching very
much, but my family keeps me very busy. I've also had the experience of
coaching a junior high softball program (at Bishop O'Reilly...I guess I am
dating myself as this school has been closed). Softball has always been a
part of my life having played since age 6. Team spirit is something in my
blood being the youngest of 5 girls!
It is my mission to provide my students with a safe, productive, and fun
environment that is condusive to the learning process.
