Biography

What I love about teaching is that things change on a daily basis. I love the moments when students get it!

I knew from the age of 7 that I was going to be a teacher and spent the summers playing school. I received my teaching degree from Carroll College and my Masters from UW LaCrosse. I spent 15 years as a substitute teacher while raising my children. I was active as a youth choir director(17 years), Girl Scout Leader(20 years) and a Youth Lay Minister (15 years). I have been an educator in the district since 1997 teaching kindergarten, second grade and now 5th grade. I continue to take classes and am a lifelong learner. I am a certified teacher mentor, a digital classroom teacher and a member of the district Social Justice Team.

My goal for all of my students is to help them to be respectful of others, enjoy learning , advocate for their learning style, connect globally to learn with others, and prepare themselves educationally and socially for middle school and the years beyond.

Biography

What I love about teaching comm. arts is the infinite variety of student stories I get to read and the opportunity to talk with students to get them excited about reading.

I started teaching in the Hartland/Lakeside District in 1988, and I plan to be here for many years to come! My four children keep me and my wife quite busy at home.

My classroom is all about reading and writing. My classroom library of over 700 books is always open to students throughout the year. I expect every student to develop a schedule for reading outside my classroom and to report to me on their reading habits each week. We also have reading/writing partners in class to help students learn how to collaborate on writing and reading projects. The focus is for every student to grow as a writer and reader regardless of ability level.

3rd Grade Hartland South Elementary Work Phone: (262) 369-6720
Biography

I have been working in the Hartland-Lakeside School District since 1999. I have taught second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education for grades one through nine. I also have earned a Masters of Arts in Education from Viterbo University. 

As a parent, I know that you are your child’s first teacher. Together we will work to make their academic experience as positive and successful as it can be. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions that you may have. 

What I love about teaching is working with families and watching a child grow and mature over the school year.  

My expectations are that children become active participants in their education.  Our day starts with a special.  After children return we busily get involved in writing, followed by an interactive read aloud.  Students then go to recess and lunch.  After lunch we dive into math and word work.  Students then take a quick break and we immerse ourselves into reading.  The day is capped off with social studies, science or engineering.

Drama Teacher North Shore Middle School Work Phone: (262) 369-6767
Biography

What I love about teaching is… sharing enthusiasm for my subject matter.

I have been teaching at North Shore Middle School since the fall of 2008.  I helped to create and implement the theater and movie making classes at North Shore and continue to help it change and grow every year.  In theater classes, students learn how to create characters, act as an ensemble onstage, write scripts, and will discover how theater has changed since ancient times.  Students use costumes, props, and the stage to bring their scripts to life.  In movie making classes, students learn how to film and edit their own footage to look like professional movies.  Students use video cameras and computers to create commercials, newscasts, stop motion films, movie trailers, short films, and more.  I also co-direct the fall play and spring musical for our drama club and manage the stage crew.

8th Grade Math. North Shore Middle School Work Phone: (262) 369-6767
Biography

What I love about teaching is being able to reach learners at all levels and provide an experience to, hopefully, impact students’ future decisions!

8th Grade Math: The 8th grade math course, Core Connections Course 3 (CC3), is the third of a three-year sequence of courses designed to prepare students for future rigorous algebra courses. This particular course helps students develop multiple strategies to solve problems and find connections. The curriculum is based off of the Common Core Math Standards and Math Practices found here.

Major concepts of study include: finding connections between tables, graphs, patterns, and equations, solving equations, solving systems of equations, coordinate grid transformations, collecting and analyzing data trends, calculating slope, Pythagorean Theorem, linear and non-linear functions, rational and irrational numbers, exponent and scientific notation rules, angles created by transversals and parallel lines, and volume of various solids.

Homework: The home is designed to be used as a “review & preview,” as labeled, to develop and maintain mathematical understanding and skills for the concepts learned in the CPM math books. The concepts will continue to come up throughout the book to keep ideas fresh and aid in comprehension.

***Students are expected to attempt all assigned homework problems. The Honor Level Code issues a three-point infraction for incomplete homework assignments.

Tests and Quizzes: Because of the importance for students to receive spaced practice with course concepts, tests, and quizzes will cover a variety of topics, many of those that were covered in a previous chapter and review in homework problems.

GRADING: All grades earned in math will be posted on our online grading system weekly, including homework, mid-chapter quizzes, Puzzle Investigator problems, and assessments (tests, exit slips, writing prompts (etc). Families are encouraged to access the 8th grade google site https://sites.google.com/a/hartlake.org/nsms8thgrade/ for the homework, quizzes, and assessment calendar and weekly updates, as well as our online grading system via the school website.

7th Grade STEM

STEM 7 is a trimester encore class that introduces students to the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Students will learn about the importance of STEM and how it influences the world we live in. By engaging in hands-on, real-world projects, students understand how the skills they are learning in the classroom can be applied in everyday life. Students will learn sketching techniques and use of descriptive geometry as a component of design, measurement, and computer modeling. Solid modeling software will be used to introduce students to the design process. Using the design process, students brainstorm, research, develop ideas, create models, test and evaluate design ideas, and communicate their solution to solve problems.

Please see the site https://sites.google.com/a/hartlake.org/nsms-grade-7/ for STEM info, homework, and links to student work.

6th Grade STEM

STEM 6 is a trimester encore class that introduces students to the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Students will learn about the importance of STEM and how it influences the world we live in. Through problem solving challenges, students are introduced to and immersed in the design process used by engineers in the real-world to solve everyday situations. Students will also be introduced to the basics of robotics through the use of simple and motorized mechanisms.

**Design and Modeling is covered in more depth in 7th grade STEM, while programming, building, and electrical robotics is tackled in 8th grade STEM!

Biography

What I love about teaching is hearing the light bulbs go on when students understand a concept or solution in math. It is that “now I get it!” moment.

My name is Patty Eckerman and I teach 6th grade mathematics at North Shore Middle School. I have a Business Degree with a Spanish minor and I returned to school to obtain my teaching certification with a mathematics emphasis a few years ago. I teach both the CC1 and CC1/2 hybrid class and advise the 5th and 6th grade math club. Our math classroom is collaborative in nature and you will hear mathematical discussions going on within each team of students. I believe students learn best when they work on, discuss and then present mathematical problems and their solutions together. Participation is a must on these teams and therefore everyone has a role or job. Homework is given almost daily and is due the next day. Homework is necessary to practice the concepts we work on in the classroom. The way students learn math today is not the way I learned math at their age. Our curriculum is highly engaging with students solving unfamiliar problems together, analyzing alternative solutions, and using these solutions to solve similar types of problems. This leads to conceptual understanding, critical thinking and reasoning skills that are needed in the workplace today.
