Educators Jeremy & Kelly Butler spending their vacation with each other. The pair have met in the Colorado mountains and have been inseparable ever since.

Of the hundreds of teachers at WJ, there are a select few who decided to find love within the bubble of the school.

Jeremy and Kelly Butler are the most talked about and known married couple on campus. Jeremy Butler works as an honors U.S. History teacher and Kelly Butler works as a chorus teacher. Teaching very different courses, the two clearly have their differences; however, their love and passion for teaching is something that they share. Both of them are expressive with their relationship, and make it known to their students by sharing stories with them, showing how the two are clearly proud of their marriage. The couple initially met at a middle school and the rest was history.

“Having her here works out great. We know people in common, we can work out rides home, and since our classrooms are on different sides of the building we are not interacting every second of the day. When we do see each other, it makes it more fun. Working at the same school isn’t new for us, we met working at a school in Colorado and have worked together ever since. It’s also fun when students realize that they have both of us, but some students don’t realize that we are married,” Jeremy Butler said

Kelly Butler had similar stories and experiences but with her own twist.

“We met at our previous school, and we had an assembly where he brought his class and saw me on stage. We never ever see each other, because of how big the building is and because of how much is going on. Having students know both of us or have both of us is fun because they would share what they learned in his class and when my kids are performing he would come to our concerts and such,” Butler said.

One could believe married teachers working together at the same school would make the situation awkward amongst students and their work environment. In fact, this unique situation just adds to the fun and excitement of working together and allows for a guessing game whenever students are curious about these teachers’ love lives. Compared to many other teachers, this special pair stands out amongst the other hundreds of teachers on campus and makes life a little extra interesting for them.
