Ms. Vanessa Whittle

I'm a collector of maps, sci-fi and history nerd, and mom of two adult children. Originally from Leeds, England, I grew up in Houston, Missouri, and now live in Vienna. I began teaching in 2002 and have spent most of my career teaching middle school social studies.

I'm currently the advisor for Tiger News Network, our middle school news media production class. Our TNN crew produces a weekly news broadcast about events in our school, other happenings relating to current events, and topics of interest to our WMS students.

As the Instructional Technology Specialist at Waynesville Middle School, I am excited about the opportunity to learn from and assist my fellow teachers in blending technology tools with their instructional strategies so that we can provide memorable learning experiences for the students at WMS!
