Mrs. Karen Gedde
It is my pleasure to introduce myself as a returning teacher to Blaine County School District. I have a Bachelor’s in Education with a major in Speech/Language Pathology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I obtained my Master’s in Special Education from the University of Idaho-Moscow. My educational career started as a paraprofessional at Hemingway Elementary School. Upon receiving my Master’s, I was a Reading Teacher for 11 years at Hailey Elementary School. I am now returning after four years of being a CEO to my family. I am excited to move up to WRMS as a Special Education teacher in 8th grade. Through my experiences, I truly believe all students can learn when it becomes a meaningful engaging experience for them – whether that means literally digging in the dirt to conversing with a classmate across the globe via an instant webcam. I am excited to inspire, engage, educate and empower every student.
