Mr. Wendelberger-Literacy TOSA
Mr. Wendelberger

I tell anyone who will listen that I have the best job in the world, because I get to work with some of the most amazing students and adults on the planet!  Every day my students teach me how to improve myself as a teacher and a person.  In return, I give them an unrelenting passion for reading and learning.

I have been lucky enough to work at Olson since 2002.  As building literacy coordinator, I am responsible for nurturing a culture of literacy among students and staff.  I am a part of our building literacy initiatives.  I design and deliver comprehensive staff development in areas including: assessment techniques, analysis and use of data to monitor growth and inform instruction, and research-based instructional techniques for teaching decoding, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.  I collaborate closely with teachers providing coaching, conducting demonstration lessons, and supporting all areas of teacher development. 

In short, my job is to make Olson a great place to learn.
