About Our 8B Teachers
My name is Casey Hertz and I am originally from Ocheyedan, Iowa. I attended Sibley-Ocheyedan High School and graduated in 2012. After graduation I attended Southwest Minnesota State University where I played college football for four years. I graduated in 2016 with a degree in Biology and General Science Education. My first teaching position was at Cedar Mountain High School in Morgan, Minnesota where I taught 7th, 8th, and 11th grade science. My first year at Worthington, Minnesota was the 2017-2018 school year and I taught 6th and 8th grade science. In addition to teaching I will also be coaching middle school football and high school boys basketball. I have a passion for working with kids and instilling in them a love for science and self improvement. It is my goal to build positive relationships with students and encourage life long learning!
