Mr. Heck's Classroom


About Me

I was born and raised in Burlington, WI where I grew up in a family of teachers. I graduated from Burlington High School in 2009. While at BHS I was a four year varsity wrestler, played football and was in the school band for two years, and was part of many other groups, including a Southeast Conference Student Leadership Group. After high school I attended the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, where I majored in Elementary Education with a minor in Math. While in La Crosse I worked for the Boys and Girls Club and a was member of a diversity group called Leadership in Action, where I was the acting President for two years. After I graduated in December of 2013, I moved back to Burlington where I became a long-term substitute at Karcher Middle School for 7th Grade math and reading. I was hired to teach 6th grade math at Walworth Elementary and Middle School in August 2014. Along with teaching at Walworth, I also coach wrestling and football for Big Foot High School.

How to Contact Me

My email is tyler.heck@walworth.k12.wi.us. I try to respond as quickly as possible, even when at home. If you would rather speak over the phone you can call the school 262-275-6896 (Ext. 1222).

A Few Notes:

  • During the day I don't usually answer the phone as I am teaching, but feel free to leave a message and I will try and get back to you as quickly as possible.
  • During the fall and winter sport seasons I leave for practice at 3:25, but usually arrive to school around 7:30 in the mornings throughout the year.
