Mr. Manthis

I am excited for my 7th year at Highland Park Senior High School after teaching for 14 years at Totino-Grace. A late arriver to the teaching profession, I worked as a movie theater manager for 15 years before deciding to switch careers.

I received my B.A. in English at the University of Minnesota, received my teacher licensure through Augsburg College and earned my Master's at the University of St. Thomas. My wife and I have two kids, and I'm a lifelong Minnesotan who loves sports, particularly golf and hockey.
