Mrs. Zwiefelhofer

Hello, I am Sara Zwiefelhofer and I am a Middle/High school Special Education Teacher. I graduated from UW-Stout in 2003 and have a Bachelors of Science in Vocational Rehabilitation as well as being certified to teach students with Emotional Behavioral Disabilities and Intellectual Disabilities. I am currently in the process of getting my Learning Disabilities Certification as well. My main focus in my classroom is to get students ready for life after high school. Besides working on academic skills I also teach life skills, social skills and transition skills. I want every one of my students to be responsible, accountable and prepared to be successful in whatever path they chose to take after high school whether it is a career or post-secondary schooling.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids at our home in Chippewa Falls. My 2 sons join me for the commute here daily and enjoy being part of a small school district. We are very active in sports and outdoor activities, including soccer, baseball, curling and fishing. We like spending time in the summer exploring the parks in the area and camping.

I look forward to working with all of the great students that are here in Thorp for many years to come!!
