My name is Mrs. Laura Wesselmann. This is my 16th year teaching. I have taught a variety of mathematics and science classes from 6th grade up through seniors in high school. I am very excited to be teaching 7th and 8th graders for my fourth year at Carlyle Junior High School. I enjoy helping students get the foundation they need to be successful in their high school math classes, and beyond that in their future colleges and careers. Mathematics is empowering and can open many doors in a student's future.
I grew up in Belleville, IL. I attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale for my undergraduate degree in Mathematics Education. I took coursework there to become certified to teach general science and physics as well as math. I recieved my masters degree from McKendree University. My husband and I live in Trenton along with our three children, two dogs, and many fish. We enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, especially swimming, hiking, biking, camping, and kayaking. Music is also a big part of our lives.
