My name is Cora Wiens, and I teach 4th grade at Legacy Academy. I grew up on a small farm in Iowa along with two siblings. Growing up, I always enjoyed helping others, especially children. I discovered I had a passion for children when I worked as a camp counselor in high school. I received my Bachelors in Education at MidAmerica Nazarene University and have been working with students ever since. I became apart of the Legacy family in 2013. Before that, I was living abroad in South Korea teaching English to middle school students. There I learned how to adapt quickly with limited resources. I greatly enjoyed and valued my time living there. I believe that all children learn in different ways, and it is my goal as a teacher to provide a rounded education through different teaching methods. I also believe that a teacher should be a good role model for their students and peers.
