Mrs. Wendy Rectenwald
Core Instructional Support (Grade 2)
My name is Wendy Rectenwald, and I will be working in 2nd grade with Mrs. Wagness this school year. This is my 3rd year of working with Mrs. Wagness in the mornings to provide core support during language arts and math. I am grateful to be back in Duluth because I grew up here. I attended Denfeld High School, and left to go to college at the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis. I earned an undergraduate and graduate degree in education there. I worked in St. Paul, MN as a 4th grade teacher for 13 years. I married Tom, a Holy Rosary alum, and we decided to move back to Duluth to get out of the rat race of the Twin Cities. After we moved back my daughters were born (Elly 7th and Sarah 5th) and I stayed home with them. When they started at Holy Rosary, I volunteered in the school and then I was lucky enough to start working part-time in 1st grade with Mrs. Altonen. I am fortunate to be part of a great staff of wonderful dedicated people!
