Wadelton, Mike (IA Pre-K)


My name is Mike Wadelton, and this is my 10th year here at CFI 27, as an assistant teacher in Pre-K. After graduating from Ball State and IU (IUPUI), my teaching career began at The Orchard School, and continued at Park Tudor, assisting with Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 2nd grade. I’m also a musician and play the piano at my church, and teach piano lessons after school. I’m likewise active in the theater community, getting my start at Footlite Musicals, and have been with Tarkington Civic Theatre (formerly Indpls. Civic Theatre) since 1997, where I’ve acted, and run the follow-spot for most musicals. During the past summers, I’ve worked at WFBQ, have worked off and on at Deer Creek, but have worked mostly for The Walt Disney Company, at Walt Disney World, for the past 28 seasons. The pandemic sidelined that gig for two summers. In the interim, I worked for Wal-Mart, Costco, and delivered for Amazon. I returned to WDW this past summer for my 29th season.
