Wolf will head the district's high school
June 18, 2003 — Culver High has a new principal.
Brian Wolf — who has spent the past seven years working as a mathematics teacher in the Bend-La Pine School District — has been selected by the Culver School Board to serve as the high school’s principal starting in September. His hiring highlighted the June meeting of the Culver school board.
“I’m looking forward to becoming a member of the community,” Wolf said.
Besides enthusiasm, Wolf will bring experience to his new post. He spent six weeks in an administrative role as a subsitute for a woman who took a medical leave from Summit High, where he was working this past year.
Wolf has worked in varied school districts over a 25-year career, including 10 years in Mill City. A chance to move to sunny Central Oregon’s climate was the main draw here, Wolf explained.
“We really liked being in a small city (in Mill City), but we enjoyed the climate of Central Oregon even more. I see Culver as the best of both,” he said.
Wolf’s wife, Renee, and his son, Spencer, 8, and daughter, Mackenzie, 6, helped him search for a house. The Wolfs are excited they found a home just a few minutes from Culver High. If their school days happen to start a few minutes before or after each other, he’ll just come in early or bring his soon-to-be first- and second-grader with him, Wolf explained.
He anticipates settling in over the summer to be ready to start the school year in full gear.
Having a chance to interview with members of the board a couple of times has Wolf feeling very comfortable with the community and ready to help, he added.
