After 15 years of devoting her love of teaching and learning to the Hunnewell community, Louise Wolfe has decided to retire at the end of this school year. One of the favorite parts of my days at Hunnewell is when Louise stops in to share a piece of student work that demonstrates a child’s growth. She takes such pride in making a difference in the lives of the children she teaches. Her Hunnewell colleagues and I will miss her terribly. She leaves a legacy of strong writers, readers, and mathematicians, many of whom ask to do their senior project in her room.
Louise leaves big shoes to fill and I know it gives her peace of mind that we have hired our primary Therapeutic Learning Center Teacher, Megan Williams, to fill her position. Ms. Williams joined the Hunnewell staff in the fall of 2015 from Lexington where she taught kindergarten and first grade. If you have not yet met Ms. Williams, you are in for a treat. She has worked in each of the primary classrooms at Hunnewell and has a strong rapport with all of the children, so her transition into this new role should be seamless.
Please join me in wishing Louise a lovely summer and a well-deserved, relaxing retirement (maybe we can convince her to come back and sub every once in a while:).
