Ms. Kylie Wilson, along with three other teachers, will not being teaching at Wahlert next year. While other teachers such as Ms. Jeni Kitzinger, Ms. Yao Xiao and Ms. Patty Green, are moving to other schools, Wilson will be leaving Wahlert to go back to college. 

She will be going back to school at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa, to earn her master’s in Kinesiology. She made this tough and difficult decision official earlier this month.

“I really enjoy learning; it’s fun for me. My education is something that is very important to me. I value it very much,” she said.

Lily Roth, ‘20, had Wilson as a teacher for biology this year. She thoroughly enjoyed Wilson’s teaching style and how she dedicated herself to her students.

“She made learning science very interesting. The way she taught hard topics was awesome,” Roth said.

Wilson was also one of the assistant softball coaches last year. Not only did Roth love Wilson in the classroom, she also loved her on the field.

“Wilson always dedicated herself to her players, and she would always have a go-getter attitude which worked well with our team,” Roth said.

In Wilson’s little free time, she was also was junior senate moderator. Sydney Rury, ‘19, junior class representative, appreciated all of the hard work Wilson put into helping plan events this year.

“She always helped us make our crazy prom ideas a reality,” Rury laughed. “Ms. Wilson always made sure we got everything done in time and organized correctly.”

Wilson will miss the atmosphere at Wahlert, especially her coworkers she said.

“The other teachers here at Wahlert really guided me through my first year of teaching; I am so fortunate for that,” she said.

Many students will be sad to see Wilson go, but she is excited and eager to see what the future holds for her. She will miss the Wahlert community dearly, but knows it always will have a special place in her heart.
