QUEST with Mr. Kueffner

 

I have been teaching in West Hartford for many years and spent my first several as a QUEST teacher at Morley and Whiting Lane before joining the staff at Bristow Middle School when it first opened.  At Bristow, I taught 6th grade Math and Science.

After teaching at Bristow for 7 years, the opportunity to return to QUEST at the elementary level came up and I now teach at Webster Hill and Whiting Lane schools. Because I have so many interests and love helping students pursue theirs, I particularly enjoy being a QUEST teacher. 

My wife and I live in Storrs where we raised a son and a daughter, both now out of college and in their twenties. When I'm not at school, my favorite place to be is outdoors--in the woods (even climbing in the trees, if there's time), farming (I have created a number of educational corn mazes over the years), and raising animals. We typically have a small flock of egg-laying chickens and my wife and I grow all our own meat, including pork, chicken, lamb, and beef, but no fish!  When I can, I also like to spend time bicycling, walking, working with wood, reading, and writing.
