My name is Erik Meinhardt. I grew up in Clintonville, WI and attended a K-8 school very similar to North Cape. After graduating high school. I earned my education degree in German and Social Studies at UW-Platteville. After graduating, I taught English for 1 year in Germany and another year in Poland before returning to the U.S. to teach German. While teaching German, I earned my Reading Specialist license and found my home here at North Cape. I'm passionate about literacy and continuous improvement of literacy instruction.
