Hi, my name is Ellen Wissman. I am a graduate of the University of Houston-Victoria. I majored in Interdisciplinary Studies, minored in mathematics. I began my teaching career in 1993 and came to West Ridge in 1997. My husband, Kent, is from Cape Girardeau, MO and graduated from the University of Missouri with an Electrical Engineering degree. He is a Director at AMD. We have two children and a dog Hannah. Our daughter, Taylor, is a 2017 graduate of WHS and is a Sophomore at UT. Our son, Jake, will be a Junior at WHS. As you can tell from the pictures, my family and I love the beach! This will be my 22nd year teaching middle school math. West Ridge has a wonderful community of parents and students, and I look forward to a great year with your child.
