Hello, my name is Colleen Wolff. This is my 20th year of teaching at Murwood Elementary School. I taught 1st grade for 11 years, 3rd grade for 5 years, and now I am VERY excited to be teaching 5th grade again this year. I look forward to preparing your child for WCI (and beyond) in all curricular areas. Prior to teaching, I worked as a computer systems analyst for Chevron for 8 years. I strive to challenge all of my students while supporting their individual learning needs. I encourage collaboration and creativity in the classroom. I love school (always have!) and hope to foster a lifelong love of learning in my students. I graduated from Cal Pol University, San Luis Obispo in 1984 and received my teaching credential from Cal State Hayward in 1999. My husband and I raised two daughters here in Walnut Creek. They are now living and working in San Francisco and Los Angeles, so we are officially "empty nesters". I absolutely love the Murwood community and culture. I know this will be a great year!
