Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Denise Weinheimer

This is the beginning of my 31st year of teaching, all at BTW!  (When I first began it was Peterson Middle School 6th Grade Campus, then it became Tivy Upper Elementary, and finally BTW.)

When I first began teaching I taught Reading and English for 20 years, my love of Reading greatly influences my Social Studies class.  My degree is in History, I have always loved learning about the past.  I believe, you can't know where you are going if you don't know where you have been.  I enjoy bringing in old items to share with the kids, it helps bring the past alive. 

I was born and raised in Kerrville, so my roots go WAY back!  My parents were both educators, and I can not remember a time I didn't want to be a teacher.  (Cool Fact:  I am teaching in the room that was my Dad's before he retired. Nifty Huh?!)

I truly believe if you don't know where you came from, you can't know where you are going!!
