As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, we'd like to introduce some of our new staff members! Today, meet Cori Greenland, our new elementary special education teacher. "Greetings! My name is Cori Greenland, I will be the new Special Education Teacher at La Farge Elementary School! I am so excited for the opportunity to be a part of the school in our community where my husband and his parents graduated, and one day my own boys will graduate from too. I grew up in a tourist lake town in Southeastern Wisconsin where I first discovered my love for swimming and sailing. After high school I moved to La Crosse and completed my bachelor's degree in Therapeutic Recreation at UWL where I found my love for long distance running and the man I now call my husband. After I graduated I moved to La Farge and worked at an inpatient behavior therapy center in La Crosse while I completed my master's in Applied Behavior Analysis. Today, I live outside of town with my husband on his family farm with our two boys and two dogs. We love just about anything there is to do outside including hiking/running at the KVR, campfires, and exploring new trails. I am looking forward to being connected to this intimate community and being part of teaching and raising our children." Please join us in extending a warm Wildcat Welcome to Mrs. Greenland!
