Shaun Hiemstra - Math
I spent 13 years of my life attending RBSD so I am well-aware of what Spartan Pride is! Prior to coming back to Laconia in 2013, I taught four years at Westosha-Central High School and 6 years at Horicon High School.
After graduating from high school in 1998, I received a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics/Computer Science from UW-Platteville (2003) and a Master's degree in Instructional Technology from Cardinal Stritch University (2006).
My previous teachers inspired me greatly--specifically, Mr. Whitney. He not only taught me to appreciate and understand fractions, he never missed an opportunity to teach his students discipline and respect. His teaching style inspired my decision to become a teacher and influences how I teach today!
As a math teacher, I will be there to make sure my students not only understand the difficult concepts, but show them why it is relevant and important. I will challenge them so they are ready for life after Laconia and always be available if they struggle.
