Welcome to Science

Mrs. Wilson- Science Room 510

Hi,

I am Mrs. Wilson and I am excited to be your son/daughter’s Science teacher this year. This is my second year at Mendive, and my 30th year teaching for Washoe County School District. I recently taught at Diedrichsen Elementary and was at Shaw Middle School, Bud Beasley Elementary, and Stead Elementary as well. I received both my Master’s and Bachelor’s Degrees in Education at the University of Reno, Nevada. I am a Native Nevadan and grew up in Carson City.

I am married to my husband, Jeremy, and have 5 children who enjoyed attending Mendive themselves. My four oldest children are all attending college and two are also in the military. My youngest son is currently attending Wooster. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family and my dogs. I have been a volunteer in our community with various organizations and sports over the last 20 years. I enjoy practicing yoga, pilates and cross-fit type workouts. I also love learning new things. I like to practice the concepts we learn in class so during our recent quarantine time, I began gardening after teaching about plants. I am now learning to compost after attending a 3 day workshop this summer about teaching sustainability.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year,

Ophelia Wilson
