Hello, my name is Wendi Colella, and I will be the Reading and Writing teacher for 4th grade. This is my 2nd year teaching ELA in 4th grade at Blue Creek Elementary School. I began working here as a Title One Tutor about 3 years ago. I was very fortunate to get to work with the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade team of teachers and students, which I enjoyed very much. So, I decided it was time to get back into the classroom!
Before moving to North Carolina, I taught 4th and 5th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies at the same school for twenty years in
New Jersey! I had previously taught in Arizona and Texas for a few years in both elementary and middle school. This will mark my 26th year in the classroom! In addition to my years in the classroom, I have substituting, private tutoring and Pre-K experience as well. It's been a great ride, and I can’t wait to embark on this exciting new school year with you!
