Congratulations to New London teacher Brad Laufenberg, the latest winner of WEAC’s Badger Red for Public Ed promotion! Brad wins tickets to the October 6 UW Football game against Nebraska at Camp Randall Stadium. The honor goes to WEAC members in appreciation for their dedication to students.
Brad, a 4th grade teacher at Parkview Elementary School in New London, has been a member of the local association’s Building Leadership Team, a Student Council advisor, a Fitness Center supervisor, and a tutor. In addition, he is a member of the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) team, a “news anchor” for the monthly PBIS videos, a member of the Building Safety Committee, and a cooperating teacher for a high school student interested in pursuing a degree in the education field.
Brad’s wife Toni is a high school special education teacher in the School District of New London, and they have a 4-year-old son Asher and a 2-year-old son Callen.
“I am very fortunate to have an amazing family, wonderful colleagues, and great friends,” Brad said. “My mother taught me how to be a teacher, and my father taught me how to be a painter. Both jobs require prep work, patience, and skill. More importantly, both jobs allow me an opportunity to be a part of a transformation process that helps people and places realize their potential.”
