Mr. and Mrs. Sauthoff

The Sauthoffs on their wedding day.

NAME: Jacqueline and Eric Sauthoff



HOW MET: They met through mutual teaching friends. 


Mrs. Sauthoff, who teaches Special Education, likes knowing that her husband “is always around to help [her]…whether its with technology, covering a duty, or just offering advice.”

She said one challenge is, “People say we have very different personalities.” Mrs. Sauthoff said her sister was a student in one of the first classes Mr. Sauthoff ever taught (before they were married). “When she found out I had met him, she told me I couldn’t talk to him because he was mean.”  (The two are now good friends).

Mr. Sauthoff, who teaches social studies, said a challenge of working together is, “She has to hear complaints about me when I organize things which require assistance from staff, such as prom and graduation.” He said the two do not discuss work at home. “I have always had a clear separation between the two worlds, and sometimes that is frustrating for her, but she has come around, especially since we work at the same school now.” 

Mrs. Sauthoff said she likes working with her husband because, “Over the years he has been able to build relationships with some of my most challenging students.”

Mr. Sauthoff likes that Mrs. Sauthoff pays attention to details: “She checks e-mails and I do not.”
