Congratulations Ms. Woelffer - Delta Vista Teacher of the Year.

I’m proud to announce Ms. Woelffer as our Teacher of the Year this year!  Ms. Woelffer currently serves our school and District as a 7th grade science teacher.  Additionally, she successfully contributes to the positive climate at our school by serving on our social committee.  Ms. Woelffer has been a highly-effective educator for 5 years, all in the Oakley Union Elementary School District.  During this time, she has contributed to the field of education beyond her classroom by volunteering to support the Reading Apprenticeship Writing Connection (RAWC) Grant and the Inclusion Collaborative Grant.  Ms. Woelffer is a “go to” for our staff when it comes to effectively utilizing technology into instruction and has led sessions for the past two years at our technology staff development days.  She regularly teaches academic interventions outside of the school day.

Mrs. Woelffer always goes above-and-beyond, making an effort to attend every after-school event with the specific purpose of supporting her students and making positive connections with parents.  She spends the majority of her prep periods calling parents.  She is the type of person you want to work with, always offering her support, such as supporting her colleagues with school events or swapping classrooms with her colleagues so their students can utilize her classroom lab and supplies, just to mention a few.

When asked how she feels she has positively impacted the lives of her students, she humbly replies that she finds great joy in making positive connections with students who would typically be perceived as difficult to reach.  Ms. Woelffer is clearly passionate about the subject she teaches.  She cultivates a love of science within her students, with many students always coming back and saying, “I used to think science is hard but not after having you.”

For all these reasons and more, I proudly congratulate Ms. Woelffer, Delta Vista Middle School’s Teacher of the Year!
