Greg Wolfe is a middle and high school history teacher at Oklahoma Connections Academy (OKCA). He began teaching in 1997 and joined Connections Academy in 2014. Mr. Wolfe holds a bachelor’s degree from Trinity University in San Antonia and a certification to teach history from Oklahoma State University.
When asked why he became a teacher, Mr. Wolfe said, “I had great social studies teachers in elementary and high school. They taught me to examine and question what I was learning. While I did not always know that I wanted to teach, I did know that I loved history and that I loved working with young people. I have also coached Little League (middle school and high school) since I graduated from college.
I love teaching at OKCA because I am able to change the order of my lessons during the day to tackle certain items in my class. I also love the interaction with the staff. At OKCA, I probably talk more with staff than I ever did when I worked at a bricks-and-mortar school. The education at OKCA helps prepare students for a bright future by providing opportunities to learn to the best of their capabilities. The interaction and the communication are what make this school so special. Despite the fact that teachers and students don't ‘see’ each other on a daily basis, strong relationships are formed between students and staff members.
I would say to parents who are considering enrolling in OKCA, be prepared to be involved in your student’s education. No matter where a student goes to school, the more the family is involved, the better the student will achieve!”
Outside of school, Mr. Wolfe likes sports, music, and learning about the history of Oklahoma, his home state. He loves sharing those interests with his wife and daughter.
