Hi, I’m Wendy Wallace a teacher, wife, parent and Certified Parent Coach through the John Rosemond Leadership Parenting Institute. I grew up in Denver, Colorado and received a degree in Psychology from The University of Colorado. After college I spent three years in Aspen, Colorado. Here I met my husband, and moved with him back to his hometown, Richmond, Virginia. In Richmond I enrolled at Virginia Commonwealth University and received my Masters in Teaching degree. I then began my teaching career as a Kindergarten teacher at a public elementary school in Henrico County. After four years in Kindergarten, I began teaching first grade at St. Catherine’s School, an all girls K-12 independent school. I taught first and second grade here for the next 18 years. I concentrated on building a healthy classroom environment, focusing on building the social and emotional health of children and their families. After raising my own two children and working with families and children in schools for over 20 years, I decided to become a Certified Parent Coach.
I love working with children and am now excited to be working with parents to help them find peace and structure in their homes.
Having a baby is one of the most important and wonderful things that can happen to a family. What they don’t tell us is how hard it is to raise a child. When I had my first child I didn’t know what I was doing, and welcomed guidance from anyone near and dear to me. Everyone seems to have a different opinion on parenting, which can be confusing. After working with children and families for over 2 decades, I would love to use my wisdom as a teacher and a parent to guide you in your child rearing in a loving and authoritative way. Parenting can and should be enjoyable! Everyone needs a hand, so let me help you on your parenting journey.
It all starts with consistency.

Wendy is such an incredible teacher and person in general. I feel so grateful that she had such an impact on my daughter's development.
Thank you for your dedication and patience, I deeply appreciate the resilience you are modeling for these girls. Thank you for being there for them and for us.
Wendy has been such a wonderful resource for our family. When our sensitive daughter was quick to give up on challenging tasks, she provided us with some tools to support her. My favorite advice was creating a family motto such as "When things are hard, Ferrells don't give up!". This has stuck with our daughter, and I've even heard her encouraging her little brother with this motto.

Wendy, thank you for dedicating so much of your life for the care and benefit of these young minds. You are such a gifted teacher. You have our admiration.
A happy parent
Wendy Wallace encourages children to reach and grow. Wendy gives a great deal of attention to the individual child. She has a commitment to frequent communication with the parents about the child. She noticed specific things about our daughter and communicated these things so that we could work together to help our daughter develop to her fullest.

Wendy Wallace taught both of our daughters. She was both loving and firm. Our daughters learned academics, but also manners and respect.
