Welcome to Wayland's Wise Owls!
I am Ms. Wayland. This year will be a very exciting time for you and your family. Kindergarten is different than any other grade and I hope to make this a special year that you and your child will remember.
I have taught in Shelby County Schools for over 20 years. I started my career at Oak Elementary where I taught Kindergarten, Second, and Third grades over the course of 12 years. I then transferred to Rivercrest where I was placed in First grade. I was a First grade teacher for five years. I was very excited to return to Kindergarten 8 years ago. I have been very lucky to have made close friends across the county and here at our school. We have a strong network of great teachers that love to share new ideas that help all kindergartners.
I have one child, Torrey, who attends the University of Memphis. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Memphis State University and my Master’s Degree from Arkansas State University.
I look forward to forming a partnership with you. This is going to be a fun and busy time and we will need lots of help! I know that this will be a great year for you and your child. I look forward to working with each of you.
Ms. Wendy Wayland
