"I am excited for round 2 in the classroom with the students and staff at La Farge. I had the privilege of teaching in the Viroqua district for 25 years. Since leaving Viroqua in 2015, I have worked at several endeavors, including as a vocational job coach, a paraprofessional for high schoolers, a caregiver for seniors, and even as an optical technician. They were all rewarding, but none as much as working in our schools. I look forward to the energy and daily adventures that elementary students offer! My wife Sue and I (And our furry princess Grace) are happy to be back in the Driftless region. When we are not busy with our current remodeling project, we enjoy reading, short, "old people" hikes, learning about the birds in our area, and learning more about keeping saltwater fish."

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!
