Mrs. Welke

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in person, but wanted to share some information about myself.

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in person, but wanted to share some information about myself.

This will be my 34th  year of teaching. I taught at Ruediger Elementary School for 23 years. I loved teaching there, but when my son, Ryan, went off to college in 2009 to begin a new phase of his life, it inspired me to think about beginning a new phase in my teaching career. I love Roberts. My goal is to teach 40+ years and I look forward to every day!

My husband Glenn and I have been married for 33 years. He is a Physical Therapist and a wonderful chef. We have one son, Ryan, who is 29 years old and a Medical Consultant for a company called Veritas Surgical Solutions. He lives in Pensacola and loves his work. He and his fiancé Angie are planning to get married Oct. 2020, after she completes Physician’s Assistant School. We are very excited!

Glenn and I love nature and enjoy hiking. We also try to find time to relax at the beach several times a year. We love to walk, watch the waves and sea life, and of course read under our umbrella. There is nothing like the smell of ocean air and the sound of the waves to bring a sense of peace to a person. 

We have a full house. My mom, Linda, moved in with and us nine years ago and my Dad, Carlos, came to stay with us to recover from some health issues five  years ago and decided to move in permanently. 

After our 20-year-old cat, Whiskers, passed away three years ago, my parents wanted kittens, so we went to the shelter and found Jasmine and Jade. They have been with us for three years.

Our beloved Coosh, our 12 ½ year-old, sweet lab/ridgeback mix passed away, we adopted two dogs, Lilly (4 -year-old bull dog mix) and Red (5-year-old Black Mouth Cur mix) from a Tallahassee family. These two sweet dogs behave like they have been with us their whole lives. Glenn's sister passed away last summer, so we brought home her Pekingese, Bella, home to our family.  She is about 12 years old and is the sweet grandma!

Life is good, and I look forward to working with you and your child. It is going to be terrific year!
