Mr. Chase Den Dekker
Hello! My name is Chase Den Dekker and I started working in the Waynesville R-VI School District in 2019.
After graduating from Waynesville High School, I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Sport Management from Southeast Missouri State, and then worked for the Joliet Slammers -- an independent minor league baseball team in Illinois. I came back to Waynesville and became a paraprofessional at Waynesville Career Center. While there, I decided I wanted to become a mathematics teacher and became certified through the ABCTE. Following that route, I joined the WHS mathematics team. This year, I will be teaching Algebra 1.
I am a huge sports fan, but none of my favorite teams are in Missouri. I'm a fan of the Atlanta Braves, Green Bay Packers, and Wisconsin Badgers. Other than watching and playing sports, my hobbies include reading about history and weather, and watching The Office and NCIS.
I am the Head Middle School Softball Coach and an Assistant Middle School Girls Basketball Coach.
I look forward to this being a great year at WHS, and remember -- It's a Great Day to be a Tiger!
