North Platte High School | Social Studies

Hello.  My name is Casey Werkmeister.  I am originally from Maywood and graduated from there in 1998.  After high school, I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Kearney in History and Physical Education.  After graduating from Kearney, I was hired at North Platte Public Schools and I have been here for the last 11 years.  This past May, I finished up my Master’s degree in History from UNK and this opened the door for new horizons in my classroom.  I am able to teach dual credit history classes now and provide new opportunities for the students of North Platte High.  I am also a coach for the Bulldogs.  I am the head Freshman Football coach, and I coach boys and girls pole vault in the Spring.  


I am married to Ashley Werkmeister, who is also an employee in the district, and she teaches English at North Platte as well. We have two wonderful kids, and a third due in May of ‘17. We recently purchased a new home as our family has outgrown our old home.
