Ruth Hirschfeld

As the director of the Extended Learning Center (ELC), I feel so blessed to be part of the Lakeside family. It is very rewarding to be able to help students succeed at Lakeside. My duties include teaching ​Pre-Algebra and Foundations of English, providing study hall support to those students benefiting from the ELC study hall, and coordinating with teachers so that our students' learning needs are met when they have learning differences that inhibit their learning. In addition, I am advisor to the Teens for Christ group here on campus.
I received a bachelor’s degree from Dr. Martin Luther College and a master’s degree in education from Edgewood College. I hold a state teacher’s license in education and am licensed in cross-categorical special education with an emphasis in learning disabilities. Prior to coming to Lakeside, I taught at the primary level in our WELS grade schools.

I was born and grew up in Manitowoc, graduating from Manitowoc Lutheran High School. My husband Bill and I reside in Fort Atkinson. We are blessed with four children, Joel (Betsy), Luke (Jenifer), Micah and Anna, and five grandchildren, Kayla, Will, Noah, Evan, and Isaac. If you are ever interested in hearing about them, or seeing pictures, just let me know. ☺
