My name is Mikaela Wojick and this year, 2022-2023, will be my 23rd year teaching 5th grade!! I am one of TWO remaining teachers at Seldens who opened the building! To say I love my job is an understatement! I am really excited for the year to get underway and I cannot wait to meet you very soon! Both my husband and I were born and raised in Upstate NY. We attended St Bonaventure University together and made the move to VA in 1999. Most of our relatives still live in the Corning/Buffalo region of the state. We usually spend a bulk of our summers visiting family and friends! We vacation on Lake Erie in Canada. It’s truly the most magical place on earth! I absolutely love to read and spend time with my family. My husband teaches third grade at Mill Run and our son, Brennan, who’s eleven is a sixth grader at Eagle Ridge this year. He loves to play baseball and the guitar! We live in downtown Leesburg with our 90lb black lab name dog, Delilah. Living off of King Street is pretty awesome too. I am absolutely obsessed with Notre Dame College Football and am a die hard New York Yankee fan. I spend my free time gardening in both my front and back yard where we grow our own vegetables. You can usually find me outside in the gardens during the summer. My husband and I raise and release Monarch butterflies each season! Last year we released over 600 Monarchs!! I can’t wait for you to experience this journey with me. In the fall I’ll bring them into our classroom and you’ll get to let them go here at Seldens too! I am looking forward to meeting you and hearing all about your families, favorite past times, books, sports, and activities… Buckle up, we have a great year ahead of us!
