ST. JOSEPH, Ill. (WCIA) — This Teacher to Know gets to spend every day with a roomful of 2nd graders. She says it’s an age where they’re still learning new things.
Angie Weaver loves the fact every day brings something new. She started her career a little later in life. She took time to stay at home with her kids, then went back to school and started as a teacher’s aide.
She has now taught at St. Joseph Grade School for seven years. She started teaching 4th grade before moving to 2nd. Weaver says, now that her kids are getting older, it’s nice to still get some time with the little ones.
She was teaching math and measurements during the visit. She says smiling faces keep her coming back. She also says she loves teaching in the St. Joseph community and she’s fortunate to have landed the job when she did.
