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 thirteenth year in the
and my seventh 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 14 year old who has been brainwashed to love Notre Dame and
the Yankees. Alexandria is my sweet 10 year old daughter. She is also very
involved in sports (especially basketball, softball, and field
hockey). She too has completed all stages of the brainwashing! Joshua is my
very pleasant 7 year old who (no suprise here) loves
sports as well. He experienced his first Notre Dame football game on
September 2nd, 2011 at South Bend. His first jersey was retired and shares
place on a wall in our home with his siblings' first jerseys. He too has
completed all stages of the brainwashing! 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 whom I miss coaching very
much. I've also had the experience of coaching a junior high softball
program (at Bishop O'Reilly). 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.
