Mr. Wachsberger's Online Classroom


You're probably noticing that just about everything that was once here is now missing.  There's a reason for that.

After spending 14 years as a classroom teacher, I took a new step in my career during the 2021-2022 school year by becoming the K-4 math coach for Barberton City Schools.  This meant I was traveling back and forth between Barberton Elementary West and Barberton Elementary East, working together with teachers from both buildings to come up with ways to make math as great as it could be for students.  If you've ever been a student of mine, you know math has always been my favorite subject!

Building changes happened in Barberton the following year, and with it I became the K-2 instructional coach for both math and language arts at Barberton Primary School (formerly Barberton Elementary West).

Stepping out of the classroom and accepting this new position was not an easy decision.  While I am really enjoying learning more about best practices for instruction and having opportunities to share that knowledge with other teachers, I'm also sad to not have a class of my ownThe good news though is that if I do return to the classroom in the future, I'll be able to take what I've learned from this experience and use it with my own students, too.

I doubt this is "goodbye forever" to the classroom for me, but instead a new path to explore for a little while.  Even though the class website is pretty much empty now, I am keeping the Former Students Wall up and running.  Don't hesitate to leave a post there.  Just like always, I'll still be sure to get back to you in a day or two.

To all of my past classes, thank you so much for everything!
