John Wulff is a science teacher at Champlain Valley Union High School, where he has been for 17 years. While passionate about his profession, John is equally passionate about his pursuits in the realm of outdoor athletics. In the winter time, just about every day of the week, he might be spotted haunting the slopes of local resorts before or after normal hours of operation -- that is, provided there's not enough snow in the woods! In the spring, summer, and fall, the bulk of his time is consumed by the local mountain bike trails. A believer in both the physiological and mental benefits of regular activity, John feels most accomplished when he is successful in indoctrinating others with the same perspective.
