My name is Sandy Stoelting and I am the Title 1 Math teacher at Winton Woods Elementary School.  The Winton Woods district is dear to my heart.  I am an alumnus of Forest Park High School. Go Chargers! The teachers in this district inspired me to become a teacher.  I wanted to give back to the community that gave me a great education. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from the University of Cincinnati. Love those Bearcats!

This is my 19th year in the Winton Woods school district.  For the first 3 years, I was a 6th grade math and science teacher at Forest View Elementary.  I then taught in a self-contained 4th grade classroom for 4 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom.  When the district reconfigured in 2007, I came back as an Instructional Assistant and worked with 3rd grade Special Education students for 4 years.  This is my eighth year as the Title 1 Math teacher at Winton Woods Elementary.

I am excited to be a part of Schoolwide Title 1 Math.  It gives me the ability to support all students at Winton Woods Elementary.  By working collaboratively with the staff, we can make sure the students are receiving quality math instruction.

I am looking forward to an awesome year!

I spent my first year after graduating as a substitute teacher and lived in my hometown Minster, Ohio.  I taught kindergarten at Winton Woods Primary South during the 2016-2017 school year which I spent half of the year co-teaching and the second half in a classroom of my own.  During the 2017-2018 school year, I was transferred to Winton Woods Primary North where I taught my first year of 1st grade. It is now my 3rd year in the Winton Woods school district.  I have transferred back to Primary South this year where I am teaching 1st grade for the second year. My personal experiences in school have inspired me to want to give back to students of my own.  It is my goal to help them have a love of learning just as I did.

I am excited to continue working with the children in my class this year and to help them meet their full potential. I am sure it will be an awesome year!
