My name is Katey Wadewitz, and I am Riverway's Leader of Operations. I have worked at Riverway since 2004, first as a Special Education Learning Leader and then as the Assistant Director under Laurie Krause, Founder and Director, who retired at the end of May, 2012. I hold MN teaching license in Special Education, Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, with a Bachelor of Science Degree from St. Cloud State University.
In the new administrative structure, Leslie Lehnertz and Patrick Sheedy, the Leaders of Teaching and Learning, partner with me in the leadership duties of the school. My responsibilities include oversight of school finances, state reporting, the office/business department, the food service department, the transportation department, the special education department, and the school building and grounds. I work part time during the school year and through the summer months as well, so you will find me in the office two-three days per week.
I was raised in Winona, and now reside with my family near Stockton. My husband Bret, and I have four children, Mason (10), Cora (8), Quinn (3), and Calvin (1).
I am very passionate about the future of Riverway, and very thankful to partner with students and families to fulfill the school's vision: INSPIRED HOLISTIC LEARNING.
