Ms. Teresa Manning

Hello and welcome to my 3rd Grade Classroom! I am Teresa Manning and this is my 11th year at the best school in the district, West Maple! I am a graduate of Hampton University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism. I also have a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. I look forward to walking into my classroom every day to teach, learn and grow right along with my students! It is my belief that we all need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how. I hope to encourage my students to be creative, explore and take risks!

When I am not in my classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, teaching dance and traveling. I also enjoy performing and doing choreography for various musical theater productions.

Fun Facts:

I danced professionally for 5 years for various sports teams including the Detroit Pistons!

I am a Chocolate Lover!

I have shared the stage with various artists including Mariah Carey, Boys II Men, and LL Cool J.

I have recorded voiceovers for television and radio commercials.

I love sports, especially soccer and football!
