Mrs. Den Dekker

Mrs. Den Dekker reporting for her 5th year at Waynesville High School. This year I am excited to get the year started off teaching both Way-Med and Sports Medicine. These courses are designed for individuals who want to learn more about medical careers and also take a dive into the human body and start learning about anatomy, injuries, and different medical careers out there. We will be completing a mix of interactive stations, hands on taping labs, rehabilitation care, and many more interactive activities that foster a learning environment for my students. With that being said, it is very important that students are willing to work together as a team instead of individuals, following classroom procedures, have the needed notebook and classroom supplies, and their chromebook fully charged daily to help set them up for success in my course! 

A little about me is I graduated from Central Methodist University in 2017 with my Bachelor's Degree in Athletic Training. After that, I completed an athletic trainer fellowship program with McCluer South-Berkeley High School and completed my Master's Degree from Concordia University-Chicago in Exercises Science and completed a certification in corrective exercise movement. In 2019, I moved to Waynesville and started working as the Athletic Trainer for our sports programs. This gave me the opportunity to start teaching my student athletes about my job, anatomy, rehabilitation exercises, and different injuries, which led me into creating Sports Medicine courses in 2021. I can't wait to ontinue to teach my students about the many opportunities out there and teach them some essential skills that will be utilized outside of my classroom. 

This will be a great year, and I look forward to working with you and your students this year to help them achieve their greatest successes.
