When it comes to the educating kids, much of the focus is rightfully on the relationship between the student and teacher. However, as anyone who knows anything about how a school district operates, there are a lot of people “behind the scenes” who are just as responsible for that student’s education.
One of those people was John Wolfe, the chief financial officer for the Los Alamos Public School System. Wolfe, who has been LAPS’ chief financial officer for seven years, will be moving on to oversee the state’s entire public education budget, which includes all the public and charter schools in the state.
July 11 is his last day.
Wolfe has been involved in finance his entire career, even when he was in the military.
“I’ve always been a numbers guy. I know it’s not for everybody, but I’ve always liked the figures, I like working with them, making them work” he said. “I liked coming up with the solution to the problem. If you don’t have the money for the program, you probably aren’t going to be able to do that program with the quality or to the level you would like to.”
He said that what he’s going to miss most about working in LAPS is the people and his fellow co-workers.
