Thank you for visiting the Cyclone House webpage for Language Arts and Extended Literature.
My name is Ms. Van Eperen-Waldorf, known by most as Ms. VW. I have taught at NRMS for 22 years. I am originally from Appleton, Wisconsin, but New Richmond has been my home for the past 17 years. I graduated from UW Oshkosh with a degree in education and a minor in English then went on to earn my Masters in Literacy Instruction from Saint Mary's University in Minnesota. At various times during my tenure at NRMS, I have taught 7th grade language arts and literature, science, social studies, Spanish, and math. I currently teach literature, extended literature and reading intervention for the Tornado House which also includes Mrs. Gibson, Mr. Stowars, Mrs. Steffen, Mrs. Deziel and Mrs. Kobernick. In my free time I enjoy reading, sewing, gardening and playing with my dog. I also have a great affinity for cats, as student learn quickly when they walk into my room. I strongly believe that a student's success lies in the three-fold collaboration of the teacher, parents and student. That being said, never hesitate to reach out to me regarding your child and how we can work together to make 7th grade the best year yet!
