Mr. Ludemann

My name is Mr. Ludemann and I teach 7th grade American History here at WMS. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in History and Secondary Education, and my Master’s Degree in K-12 School Administration from South Dakota State University. I want to help my students to find that learning is exciting, while being able to provide them with the tools and knowledge they need to be successful in life. I encourage students to seek out answers and strive for knowledge through critical thinking in everything they do. Feel free to drop and by and introduce yourself.

Ms. Werder

Hi my name is Caitlin Werder and I am a ELL teacher for both 7th and 8th grade. I received my degree in teaching English as a second language from Bethel University in 2012. I taught ELl students in Wisconsin for three years. I love teaching students because I get to learn so much from them, as they do from me! I love to travel and have had the opportunity to study abroad in Fiji and visit other places such as Germany, Austria, France, and Great Britain. I am also the dance team coach and love that I get to continue to do something that I so dearly love.
