Mr. Donald La Bonte
My name is Don LaBonte and I teach English part-time at West. This is my 37th year as an educator. After graduating from UW Madison, I taught for 20 years. I then served as a school administrator for 14 years, including nine years as principal of Brookfield Central and two years as principal at Milwaukee School of Languages. After retiring from administration in 2015, I wanted to return to the classroom, and was fortunate enough to find myself at West. My goal as a teacher is to help my students learn the skills in English that will allow them to be successful regardless of their-post secondary plans, and to do so in a respectful, enjoyable environment.
