Ms. Vanessa Whittle
I'm a collector of maps, Star Wars nerd, and mom of two grown kids, Sara and Lucas. Originally from Leeds, England, I grew up in Houston, Missouri and now live in Vienna with my two cats, Jango and Boba. I began teaching in 2002, and have spent most of my career teaching middle school social studies. Although my bachelor’s and master’s degrees are in history, geography is my favorite subject to teach, and I am so excited to share my love of geography with seventh graders at Waynesville Middle School!
