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.
