Dee Ruedinger, PE 7 and PE 8

Hello, my name is Dee Ruedinger.  I am in my 23rd year of teaching junior high physical education with the Manitowoc Public School District.  I earned my Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh a long time ago.   My husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary this past July with a ten day trip to Oklahoma and Minnesota.  In addition, we will be empty nesters for the fourth year in a row.  Our oldest son, Brian (23), is a first year graduate student at the University of Oklahoma-Norman.  Our youngest, Brice (21), is a senior at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. For that reason, I have taken up running. The past two years, I have run several 5k races, a 5 mile race, the Bellin 10k race and a 7 mile race.  After taking a nine month break due to an injury, I will be running a 5K in Oshkosh this September.  My goal is to complete a half marathon this upcoming school year.
