Team Progress

Gina WordellMrs. Wordell

Born and raised in Stillwater, Minnesota, Mrs. Wordell has always had a love for Wisconsin and its sports teams; she is an avid Packers’ fan and was able to be close to her Packers by attending the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay on a full scholarship for Nordic Skiing.  While at UW-Green Bay, she persuaded a degree in Elementary Education. 

Mrs. Wordell’s first teaching job was in Brillion, WI, where she spent the next three years and obtained her license in special education, with an emphasis in Emotional Behavioral Disability.  She enjoyed being a special education teacher, but knew her passion was more in math and science! 

Mrs. Wordell loves being at Kaleidoscope Academy.  She feels blessed with the opportunities she has been given, appreciates all the staff that support her, the students who keep her on her toes, and the great technology the school has to offer!

In addition to teaching, Mrs. Wordell loves the outdoors. She is a great fisher-woman! She still enjoys Nordic skiing in addition to camping, hiking, biking and competing in triathlons. Not only does Mrs. Wordell enjoy being a competitor in sports, she also enjoys coaching youth sports.
