AVON — Jon Wholeley is surrounded by the stone walls of a tiny classroom that looks like a dungeon but has the feel of something more charming as he sits at a desk and discusses his vision for the curriculum. football from Avon Old Farms.
There are books on the shelves: calculus, algebra, Latin. Here he teaches mathematics. Here, too, he conducts football meetings and breaks down films. This room, on the ground floor of a building erected in 1927, is the epicenter of Wholey’s new professional life, a life derailed by circumstances and the pandemic in 2020 — a life reinvented since.
