My name is Cathie Dudley.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my webpage!

I have been with the LeRoy-Ostrander school district since the fall of 2017. I am looking forward to exploring and learning new things with this year's group of kids! I have taught in the Lyle and Albert Lea school districts, in 2nd, 5th, and 6th grades. In 2022 I received my Master's Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in STEM and will be working with our middle and high school students, teaching Math 6, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, and Geometry.

I have one daughter, Calen, who currently works in a law firm in Mason City, Iowa. My son-in-law, Carlos, is a professor of Communications at Waldorf University in Forest City, Iowa. In February of 2023, granddaughter Luisa Alejandra was born and added a whole new dimension to our lives! My son, Joe, is a genetic biologist with Northwestern University in Chicago. In 2016, I adopted Baxter, a wire-haired terrier mix. I am an avid Minnesota Twins, Vikings and Loons (Minnesota United soccer) fan! I love watching sports on TV and in person when I can. I enjoy attending high school sporting and arts events, and look forward to seeing my kids in action this year.
