Mrs. Werk
I grew up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I graduated in 2000 from St. Cloud State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. My first teaching job was in Pine River, MN, where I taught students with learning disabilities.
After my first year of teaching I got married to Kevin Werk and we moved to Owatonna to begin our careers with Medford Public School. Kevin teaches math in the high school, coaches track, football, and is the Activities Director.
During my career at Medford Elementary, I went on to get my K-12 Special Ed. license to teach students with Specific Learning Disabilities.  I also earned my Masters Degree in Education and Leadership in 2010.  I have taught Special Education, 5th grade, 2nd grade, and now I am beginning my 6th year as the Reading Specialist here at Medford Elementary. In addition to teaching I am also a mother of two. Kevin and I have an 18 year old son, Joby, and a 15 year old daughter, Aubrianna. They keep us busy! Joby is a freshman at Winona State University, and Aubrianna is a Sophmore at Owatonna High School.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, doing things outdoors, and listening to music.
