Hi! My name is Mrs. Weitzel and I am the first grade teacher. I am from Norwood and I am so glad to be back in this community. I grew up here on an elk/cattle ranch and graduated from high school here in 2007. My dreams of becoming a teacher led me to Adams State University, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 2011.
I worked as a paraprofessional my first year out of college in Norwood. Then I accepted a kindergarten position teaching in Naturita for two years. I met my husband and moved to Walden where I taught second grade. My husband and I have two children, Lakoda and Lacie. His job eventually led us to Ridgway and I was able to stay at home with Lacie and take a brief break from education. Finally, we ended up back in Norwood and I did in home care for my Grandma and worked at Prime Time briefly. I have taught both third and first grade here in Norwood and I was so happy to have the opportunity to get back into teaching! We live on a ranch here in Norwood and have horses, cows, chickens, ducks, and barn cats. We also have two dogs named Sugar and Dolly. In my free time I enjoy hunting, camping, riding my horse, boating and working around the ranch.
