Ms. Beth Wessel
Fifth Grade Teacher
Newport Intermediate School

Welcome to Fifth Grade! My name is Beth Wessel and it is my pleasure to introduce myself as your child’s teacher. I hope you had an exciting and relaxing summer with your child. Please know that in the coming months, this classroom will become a comfortable place for making friends and engaging in active learning. Fifth grade is a warm and loving place to be!
 
I received my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education from Ohio University and my Masters in Special Education from Xavier University. I am currently taking classes at NKU to become a Literacy Specialist. I have been a teacher for 13 years and am in my seventh year of teaching in Newport.  I am proud to be a part of Newport Schools at such an exciting time! Please take a minute to look around my site!  
 
     My philosophy of education is based on the positive image of the child. I believe that fifth grade is a critical time in a child’s life and when each child is given proper support and encouragement, he/she will flourish and grow with a love for learning. The first few weeks of school will be spent getting to know your child’s likes and dislikes, learning styles, skill levels, and helping them with class routines. These first weeks will set a firm foundation for how I plan and implement curriculum and grow as a classroom community.
 
      I view the home/school relationship as a crucial team that will only benefit your child. Therefore, I hope you will always feel comfortable sharing your comments, questions, concerns, and anything that might be effecting your child’s school performance or behavior with me. I will do the same. I look forward to getting to know both you and your child!
