Seipkes calls it a career
Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary teaching veteran Mary Seipkes has retired after 36 years.
Seipkes was one of four second-grade teachers in the system last year. She informed WDC elementary principal Louis Rutten of her decision June 1.
"She felt it was time," Rutten said. "I thought it would be another three to four years before she'd retire."
Rutten praised Seipkes as a teacher who always put her students first.
