Physics on the "Reise":  Veteran Physics Teacher, Mrs. Reisenweaver, Takes on Benedictine
By: Josiah Worley ‘20

After 22 years of teaching at all levels of education, Mrs. Reisenweaver has been hired to lead the physics department at Benedictine.

The graduate of the William & Mary master’s program plans to skyrocket the physics program to new levels.

Reisenweaver, born and raised in Pennsylvania, started her teaching career at Atlee High School in Mechanicsville, Virginia. The professor continued with stints at Lee Davis High School and served as a visiting instructor at Randolph Macon College. At Randolph Macon she helped out in the physics department, as it has been her love ever since a young age.

So far, things seem to have clicked for her at BCP. "Benedictine has a very comfortable environment," said Reisenweaver. "As a person of faith, I have found Benedictine peaceful and soothing."

At home, Reisenweaver has three sons and enjoys spending time with them by watching "America's Got Talent." All three sons have participated in Lee Davis football, two of which have graduated, and one who is currently a senior. Reisenweaver herself was, and still is, quite athletic as she played volleyball at the high school and college levels. Just this past year, she participated in a national volleyball tournament through the Richmond Volleyball Club. During her time at Atlee, she served as the girls' varsity volleyball coach.

Reisenweaver looks to share all of her knowledge and experience with the Cadets. She is another great addition to the Benedictine faculty and staff.
