Hello! I am so excited to be a part of your child's school year! My name is Cathy Weaver, and this will be my 32nd year of teaching and my 31st year of teaching at Forest Dale!! During my previous years of teaching I have also taught 3rd and 4th grade.
When I am not busy with schoolwork (which is almost always!!), I am busy with many family activities. My husband, Phil (whom I refer to as "Goose") is in sales and management with Marian Inc. I have 3 children: Jonah, age 22, Gracie, age 19, and Jensen, age 16. Our family also has a furry four-legged member named Mocha! We are very active with many sporting events ranging from football, basketball, and lacrosse. I also love to cheer on the teams of my alma mater, Purdue Boilermakers and our Indianapolis Colts!! In any spare time I may be privileged to get, I enjoy reading, gardening, and lounging by the pool or beach. I grew up on a farm in Swayzee, Indiana, and my kids still enjoy making frequent trips to the family farm to ride the golf cart, play with the farm cats, or fish in the family pond. My family and friends are a very important part of my life, and it is through them that I enjoy much happiness and a peacefulness with life. You will soon come to realize that I love to laugh, and you can't always take me too seriously..."crazy" may be one good way to describe me. My motto..."Life is too short. Enjoy every minute of it!!"
I look forward to becoming acquainted with your family and enjoying a great year together!!
