Nicole Eberenz

Hi! My name is Nicole Eberenz, and I am very excited to be an Interventionist at Buder. This is my 10th year in the Ritenour School District.  Previously I spent 7 years teaching ELA and SS at Hoech Middle School.  I am a proud graduate of Ritenour High School, and I absolutely love teaching in the community where I grew up.  

I have been married to my husband Casey for 10 years and we have a son, Troy (3).  My favorite things to do are read, go to the park, and listen to music while spending time on our patio.

I have been married to my husband Andy for 24 years. We have two sons, Drew and Adam, and 3 cats!  In my free time I like to read, spend time with family and friends, and shop.

Dr. Katie Gipperich
Reading Specialist

This is my 26th year in the Ritenour School District.  I taught Head Start two years prior to that. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with my Bachelor’s degree and from SIUE with my Master’s degree and Maryville with my doctorate.

I grew up in Iowa and moved to St. Louis 27 years ago. In my free time I enjoy reading and watching netflix as well as taking motorcycle rides with my husband.  I am active with the animal rescue group called Partners 4 Pets.  So, you may hear your child coming home and talking about Dr. Gipperich’s dogs.
