4th Grade Teacher Hartland South Elementary Work Phone: (262) 369-6710
My name is Barb Volkmann and I teach fourth grade! I graduated with a degree in elementary education from UWM  in 1980 and earned a Master’s Degree from UW-LaCrosse in 2004. In addition, I am a Reading Recovery Advocate, a life-long learner and am currently involved with the district science team. I will continue to take classes to improve my craft and look forward to the many new challenges ahead! The best part of being a teacher is to watch the wonder in my students’ eyes when they discover a new skill that they can do!
My teaching experience began in 1980 in the Oak Creek School District as a Title One reading and math teacher. I have also taught in Champaign, Illinois Public Schools as a 5th-6th grade teacher. I have been teaching in the Hartland-Lakeside School District since 1993. I subbed for the district until 1996 when I became a first grade teacher. I taught first grade for eighteen years, one year in second grade and now am in my first year in fourth grade. I am looking forward to a great school year!
I have been married to Brad for 34 years and have three children. My oldest son Matt, 31, is a regional manager for Monster Energy Drink. He currently lives in Pewaukee. Katie, 29, is a senior account supervisor for Catapult Advertising in Minneapolis, MN. She lives there with her husband Matt, who is in sales, and newborn Ben! Ben, 3 months, is of course the cutest grandson in the world! Drew, 25, is a 3rd/4th grade multi-age teacher in the Muskego-Norway School District and is married to Ashley, a speech pathologist in the Greenfield School District. In addition I have a beloved 12 year old white lab named Abby! I am so proud of them all!
