This is the start page for the Canvas student learning system for all German Classes at Nicolet High School. My name is Mark Wagner. I began teaching German at Nicolet in 1999 and have 30 years of experience teaching German and American History. Nicolet offers German 1-AP. I also teach German at Glen Hills Middle School as well. I can best be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to teaching German classes, Nicolet has a German Club, German Honor Society and German Exchange Program (GAPP). These organizations provide opportunities for students to further their knowledge of German outside of the class. Nicolet German provides students opportunities to take part in several German competitions, including the WI-AATG German Pronunciation Contest, UW-Madison German Day Competition, the AATG National Exam and DSSV German Essay writing contest. Nicolet German partners with the Hunger Task Force to offer students service opportunities harvesting vegetables at their farm and sorting donations at their warehouse.
