Mr. Orthmann

  • My name is Dale Orthmann, and welcome to my teacher page!  The 2018-19 school year marks my 32nd year of teaching mathematics, and all of it has been in this district.  I have taught primarily high school courses during that time, but currently also teach two courses at the middle school in Sanborn.  I also coached softball at HMS for 25 seasons, retiring from that position following the 2016 campaign.  On a personal note, my wife Chantal and I have been married for 33 years.  Chantal teaches 3rd grade at HMS, and this year marks her 28th year in the district.  We have 3 children...the oldest, Kayla, and her husband Jeremy Berryman, live and work in the Waterloo area.  Our second daughter, Krista, is a senior at UNI in Cedar Falls, and our son Hunter is a sophomore; also at UNI.  In my spare time, I enjoy hunting, fishing and traveling to spend time with family and friends.

    You can use the course links on my page to find information about each course I currently teach, including the syllabus, lessons and assignments, and additional resources such as worked out examples and/or video tutorials.  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns, and I hope it's a great 2018-19 school year for all HMS students and staff!
