Elyse Wolland

I am most passionate about connecting with, learning from, and teaching young people, especially when it comes to exploring learning differences and self-advocacy issues.

I grew up on the East Coast and for the first half of my life considered myself a New Yorker. I studied Women’s Studies and Comparative Religion and received my Teaching Credential from Dartmouth College. I moved to the Bay Area in 1992 and taught Third Grade at an alternative Elementary school in Cupertino for nine years. During that time, I returned to school to enhance my teaching skills and better understand the diverse learning styles of my students. I received my Masters Degree in Special Education and my Education Therapy Credential from San Francisco State. I have been in the Learning Services Department at The San Francisco School since 2001.  

I live with my son (Class of 2019) and our cat in Pacifica. I now consider myself more a Californian than a New Yorker. I enjoy hiking, gardening, and spending time outside with my family, and I love the community of students, teachers, and parents at SFS.
