At last week’s Faculty Meeting, the Wheatley faculty had the pleasure of hosting two of Wheatley’s founding teachers, Tom Cautela and Joe McCormack, for an afternoon of conversation and reminiscing. Arranged by Dr. Paul van Wie, our Curriculum Associate for Social Studies, the discussion was valuable for our faculty — many of whom are part of the “third generation” of Wheatley teachers.
Mr. Cautela served as an Industrial Arts teacher before serving as Wheatley’s Assistant Principal. Mr. McCormack served as a mathematics teacher. Recently, Mr. Cautela returned to Wheatley to share his experience overseeing a small Wheatley farm in the 1970s. Mr. McCormack returns to Wheatley each year to serve pizza at our ICU Luncheon.
