Mrs. Oetken in a Nutshell
Hello! My name is Mrs. Oetken, formerly known as Ms. Hartwig. I currently teach 9th and 10th grade literacy classes at Carlisle high school. I previously taught 8th grade at the Carlisle middle school for three years. I love working with students and coaching volleyball at Carlisle. I was born and raised in small town Sioux Center, IA. I enjoy swimming in Lake Okoboji with my nephews, attending sporting events, and cooking. Prior to teaching and coaching at Carlisle, I taught English/Language Arts and coached volleyball at Akron-Westfield CSD and North High School in Northwest Iowa. I graduated from Briar Cliff University in 2012 and have been teaching ever since!
