Welcome to Alma Area Schools!
My name is Lana Rieck, and I am excited to work with families of the Alma School District. As the school counselor, I am here to assist with students' educational, personal/social, and career developmental needs.
I am very invested in our district as I am a 1986 graduate of the Alma Schools. I earned a Bachelors Degree in Social Work from Winona State University, and Masters Degree in Guidance and Counseling from UW Stout. After working several years as an elementary counselor in Sun Prairie Schools, I was fortunate to be hired as the K-12 School Counselor here.
My husband, Marvin, and I live in Alma, and we have a blended family which consists of five children. Our three oldest children have graduated from Alma High School, while the youngest two are currently enrolled in the district.
Aside from my professional duties as the school counselor, I am the advisor for Student Council, Teen Court, and the Buffalo County Partnership Council. I have also coached middle school volleyball, JV Volleyball, Trap, and currently maintain the score book for girls' basketball.
I am amazed by our staffs' commitment to our students, families and our community. The staff respects our students and instills self-worth and confidence in each individual which creates an atmosphere of mutual trust. Our district has high expectations, yet realistic and reasonable, which creates a sense of pride and accomplishment.
The Alma School District is a hidden gem in the middle of what's referred to as "God's Country". The natural beauty of the hills, rivers, and valleys provides great scenic beauty and an abundance of outdoor activities.
I feel so blessed to be part of this district and our community, and I am here to assist you in any way that I am able.
