• 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 Cedar Falls. In my spare time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, outdoor activities, spending time with family and friends, and the IOWA HAWKEYES :-)
    You can use the course links on this page to access information for the course syllabus, daily assignments and instructional videos that may be helpful for students and parents.  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns, and I hope it's a great 2017-18 school year for all HMS students and staff!
