Louise A. Wolf Master Special Education Teacher

Hello!  

This is my 38th year of teaching students with special needs and I LOVE it!  Well, I may not enjoy the paperwork but I love the kiddos. I received my BS Degree in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 1980 and subsequently a MA in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.  I began my career in Edgar, WI working for the Marathon County Department of Special Education. I landed a special education position in Wausau in 1987 and have worked at five schools including Jefferson Elementary Schools which I currently call home, and from where I hope to retire.  I have taught and subbed for the Wausau summer school program as well.

I have had the pleasure and joy of working with incredible students with intellectual, physical, emotional, autistic, hearing, visual and emotional impairments. Currently, I manage a cross categorical, special education resource room with students who range from fully included in the regular education classroom to students who are more self-contained and are working on a life skills curriculum.

My work hours are 7:45 AM to 3:45 PM, M-F.  The best time to reach me is 7:30-8:30 AM and again from 3:30-4:00 PM. My daily schedule is as follows:

7:30-8:30 Meetings...Staff, RtI, Culture & Operations, and/or IEP

8:30-11:35 Resource room with K, 1st, & 4th grade students

11:35-12:05 L U N C H

12:10-1:10 PLC/PREP

1:10-3:30 Resource room with K, 1st, & 4th grade students

3:30-3:45 Front duty, meetings sometimes until 5:00 PM

I was born and raised in Wausau, have four siblings, and attended Newman Catholic Schools.  Over my 38 years of teaching I have been involved with volunteering at my children's schools, have taught CCD classes, volunteered as a confirmation leader, was a member of PTOs and participated in a Newman Annual Fund Raising as the Co-Chair.  I have worked as a coach for Wisconsin Special Olympics, was a board member for United Cerebral Palsy, Aspirus Festival of Trees, and Wausau Soccer Association. Currently, I volunteer at the Neighbors' Place.

I am very happily married to my best friend, Kevin.  It was 31 years this August, 2017. He is a partner at the Law Firm of Ruder Ware in Wausau. Our oldest son, Josh, has a Doctorate in Behavioral Psychology and after two years in Philly, has just accepted a position as an Associate Professor at his alma mater, Carroll University, in Waukesha, WI for the 2018-19 academic year.  His wife, Gina, received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy and is a physical therapist at a rehabilitation facility. They have a beautiful daughter, Josie and another baby girl due in June of 2018. Our youngest son, Jake received his Masters in Public Health in 2017 and will complete his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in the spring of 2018.  His lovely wife, Hannah, is a neonatal I.C.U. nurse at Meriter Hospital in Madison.

My hobbies include spending the majority of my free time at our cabin in Tomahawk with family and friends, traveling to Philadelphia and Madison, snowshoeing, walking our dog, reading, crewel embroidery, biking, swimming, photography, bird watching, fishing and taking vacations around the world.
