Mrs. Wilson - Science

  • Mrs. Wilson- Science. Room 510


    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 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 and cross-fit and I love learning new things.  I also 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
