Mrs. Hohmann’s teaching career began in the Racine Unified School District in 1990. She then taught in Waterloo for two years and in Johnston, Iowa for six years. Mrs. Hohmann has been teaching in the Hartland-Lakeside School District since 1999. Before transferring to North Shore Middle School in 2008, she spent two years at Lakeside Elementary and seven years at Hartland South Elementary. She now works primarily with special education students in sixth grade.
Mrs. Hohmann believes it is her “job” to not only prepare students academically for NSMS and beyond, but to also prepare them to be responsible and resourceful learners. She works closely with parents and content area teachers to promote and maintain open lines of communication.

What I love about teaching … the satisfaction that I receive when I see students excited about what they are learning, the successes that they have, and the self confidence that they gain.
My name is Jodi Janke and I am a Learning Assistant at Hartland North. This is my fourth year in the district. My role is to support teachers and students both in and out of the classroom.
My Name is Heidi Kafkas and I am the Secretary at Hartland South and
The Hartland School of Community Learning. I have been with the District for
eight wonderful years. I have enjoyed getting to know all the great families through the years and watching your kids grow up. If I can ever help you with anything, my door is always open!
What I love most about teaching is being able to impact and make a difference in my student’s lives each and every day! There is nothing more rewarding than the look in my student’s eyes when it finally clicks!
I earned my bachelors degree from UW-Whitewater with a certification in PreK-6th grade. I also earned my masters degree in teaching and learning at Carroll College University in December of 2008.
I have been married for 9 years to my husband Mike, and have two wonderful children who keep me very busy. Mya is 6 and Nolan is 4. I love being a mom!
In my first grade classroom, I feel that it is important to enhance learning opportunities by providing an environment where students’ love for life and learning are encouraged. It is important to do so by providing a safe, nurturing, positive learning environment where children feel a sense of belonging and community. It is my strong believe that if students are provided with many hands on learning opportunities through exploration, observation, and experimentation, learning with be fun and exciting for all students.
Greetings, my name is Mr. Kreif and I am the Elementary Art Teacher here at the Hartland Lakeside School District! I rotate between Hartland North, Hartland Fine Arts Leadership Academy, and Hartland School of Community Learning. I live in Pewaukee with my wife Aleyna and my little dog, Indie. I enjoy snowboarding, building things out of wood, and going to concerts.
I graduated from the University Of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education and Ceramics with an Art History minor. During my schooling, I studied abroad with my ceramics professor for one month in Peru where I spent time in the Amazon, Cusco, and Machu Picchu. I have also traveled to Norway and I look forward to someday traveling to India. My travels in these countries have inspired me visually through their art and culture.
A lot of what I teach currently is inspired by my childhood and it makes me happy to provide these experiences for my students. When I was growing up, I would visit my grandparents and spend time in the basement woodworking with my Gramps and later go up stairs and work with my Grams using fibrous material to make projects. As a young child, using my imagination to create something real was a powerful experience. I was given the opportunity to explore these tools and processes and they have stuck with me throughout my life. I value the power and independence I can pass down to my young artists. I am really proud of how my students step up to the projects and challenges I present to them and feel lucky to be their teacher.
