Mrs. Maria Wacienga

Hi, My name is Mrs. Maria Wacienga. I was born in New Jersey and moved to Arizona when I was 11 years old.  I attended Mirage Elementary School, Desert Sky Middle School and graduated from Deer Valley High School.  I continued my education at GCC and ASU where I graduated with a BAE.  This will be my 26 year teaching.  I started my career teaching 3rd grade and I have taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. I feel my home is in 4th grade.  I love this age group!
I have been married for almost 25 years and have three amazing children.  Meghan 30, Amber 23 and Christopher 16.  They have all been students at Mirage! My children keep me very busy when I am not at school.  Meghan is our angel and living with Rett Syndrome for 28 years and we are blessed everyday to have her smiling face.  Amber graduated from Deer Valley High School and and works as a CNA, but this year she will be making me a grandmother for the first time.  We are looking forward to the arrival of our grandson, Bentley, this September.   Christopher is a junior in high school, an athlete and an inspiration to all who meet him!  I am very excited to get another school year under way!  If you need to contact me please do so at maria.wacienga or by phone at 602-467-5379. 
I am looking forward to another exciting year in 4th grade!
