Mrs. Wieferich, Teacher, 2nd Grade

Meet Diane Wieferich

I am Diane Wieferich, this is my 19th year and I teach 2nd grade.

I decided to become a teacher after I tutored a child at WMU. She had recently lost her father and lost her desire for learning. It was a great experience and helped me decide that teaching was the right career for me.

I like teaching my students about the life cycle of the Monarch caterpillar. Every summer, my family and I raise them in our house so I have many years of experience. I also like to teach my students about animals. Through the year, the children write animal reports and then we bind them into a book that they get to take home.

I am married, have two children, 3 cats and 1 dog. In my spare time, I like to walk, garden, and volunteer at the Humane Society.
