Art Teacher Hartland North Elementary Work Phone: (262) 369-6710

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.

District Nurse Hartland Lakeside School District Work Phone: (262) 369-6720

My name is Ann-Marie Meissner and I am the District Nurse at Hartland North, Hartland South and North Shore Middle School. My nursing degree is from Carroll College (now Carroll University) and I received my National Certification in School Nursing in the spring of 2014. The 2014 – 2015 school year marks my fifth year in the Hartland Lakeside School District.

I have been a fan of the Hartland Lakeside School District ever since my oldest son, Christopher, started 5K here in 1997. Since then my two younger children, Emily and Benjamin, have attended school here as well. I am extremely lucky to now be working with such an awesome group of educators.

I truly enjoy building relationships with students, especially those with long-term health care needs. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to help teach the Human Growth and Development curriculum for the 5th through 8th graders. Every day brings a new adventure!

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

What I love about teaching is having the opportunity to make music with young adults every day. The musical transformation students make from beginning band to 8th grade band is extraordinary and that, for me, is what keeps reaffirming my love of music.

Mrs. Sundstrom has been the Instrumental Music Director for the Hartland-Lakeside School District for 9 years. Before coming to Hartland, Mrs. Sundstrom taught middle school and high school bands in the Madison area. Mrs. Sundstrom graduated with honors from UW-Eau Claire in May 2003.

The Hartland-Lakeside Band Program offers many musical opportunities for our instrumentalists. There are concert bands in each grade beginning in 5th grade. Our highly esteemed Jazz Band meets before school on Mondays and Wednesdays. Instrumental students can also participate in the following events: NSMS Fall Play Pit Band, Breakfast with Santa in December, Solo and Ensemble in March, and the ever popular Spring Festival Trip to Gurnee, IL. The NSMS Jazz Band performs an annual District Tour in the Spring as well as an annual performance at Hartland Music in February. We partner with a number of community members and regional musicians to provide lessons and sectionals for our instrumental students.
