About Our 8B Teachers
Hello! I am Mrs. Doerr, the new 7th grade and 8th grade science teacher at Worthington Middle School. This is my 5th year teaching. I am a graduate from the University of Sioux Falls and I was born and raised in Southwest Minnesota around Luverne, MN. I have taught middle school science the last for years. I have previously taught in Mitchell, South Dakota, Pipestone, Minnesota, and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In my free time, I am spending time with my family and 4 pets.
My name is Mr. Myrom. I graduated from Moorhead State University in 1985 and am licensed to teach Social Studies 7-12. I began my teaching career in Newfolden, MN as a teacher of students with emotional behavior disorders.
I moved to Worthington, MN in 1989 and I currently teach 8th grade American History. I love the enthusiasm of middle level students.
Hello, I’m Mrs. Ruppert. I grew up in rural North Dakota. I graduated from NDSU in 1997 with a degree in Comprehensive Science Education with a minor in Biology. I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership in 2001. I began my teaching career in 1997 in Worthington, MN and am currently teaching 8th grade Science. I enjoy the unique personalities of middle school students.
My name is Mrs. Stofferan. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education, with a concentration in middle school math. I also have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I have been a middle school math teacher for my entire teaching career. I have taught in grades 5-8. A fun fact about me is that I attended school in Worthington from Kindergarten to Grade 12. I enjoyed growing up in the district so much that I decided I wanted to teach here.
Hello! I’m Mrs. Wintz and I teach eighth grade math and algebra. I graduated from SVRLB High School and then went to the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities where I earned a degree in chemistry in 2009. After a few years of AmeriCorps and working in a lab, I attended Southwest Minnesota State University. I graduated in 2014 with a degree in math education and licensure in both chemistry and math.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my large family, playing sports, and doing “all things Minnesota”: going to the lake, gardening, watching Gopher football, and listening to MPR.
