Mrs. Weir is the homeroom teacher for the Grade 7-8 classroom. She specializes in English, History, Physical Education, and Drama. Mrs. Weir also enjoys supervising the Special Education needs of our students and mentors the Health and Guidance aspects of the student body.
Mrs. Weir has lived in Stratford for most of her adult life where she has enjoyed raising her three boys with her husband Paul, a family doctor and avid outdoorsman. The boys are now young men ages 20, 23, and 25 all of whom are busy pursuing new careers.
Growing up Mrs. Weir lived with her family in Parry Sound, Scotland and eventually settled in North Toronto where she attended St. Clement’s Private School. Mrs. Weir has a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education from McMaster University and the Ontario Teacher’s Diploma from the University of Toronto. She has the qualifications to teach grades1-12 in Ontario. Mrs. Weir has taught at Milverton P.S., Romeo P.S., Stratford Northwestern S.S. and a private school in Stratford.
Mrs. Weir’s passions are theatre, music, reading, and physical activity. She loves to spend her winter vacations skiing in B.C. with Paul and her three boys. Summers are spent on Healey Lake at her cottage where she enjoys family, kayaking, swimming, campfires, and reading into the wee hours of the night!
School provides the opportunity for Mrs. Weir to pursue another passion – writing and directing plays. ”The magic that comes from witnessing the growth of a child from our first rehearsal to closing night is an experience that goes far beyond the walls of any classroom!”
