      Andrea Weigle
    6th Grade Language Arts Teacher
    Colonel Smith Middle School
     I am a graduate of William Patterson University in the state of New Jersey, where I was born and raised. I am an army spouse, and I raised two boys while moving around the country and around the world. I have been a teacher for many years and have had the opportunity to work for DODEA twice. I enjoy reading, crocheting, baking, and gardening.
    My Language Arts class includes lessons, experiences, and activities in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. This year your student will have opportunities to sharpen their public speaking skills through a wide range of project-based learning activities. I follow the 6+1 Traits of Writing model and the AzMerit grading rubric for essays and projects.
