Mr. Jim Glaser

Hello and Welcome to another fantastic school year!

I have been in education for over 20 years. I attended college at North Iowa Area Community College, Concordia St. Paul, Minnesota State University, Mankato, and Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. I have taught 3rd grade most of my career. I taught in Minneapolis, Albert Lea and St. Paul. Most recently I have been a Math Coach, Instructional Coach and am currently the Learning Lead. I always look forward to another year of learning. I work with students, staff and families. I work to create high academic and personal expectations for everyone here at Barack and Michelle Obama Elem. I work to create a positive culture in the building and am proud to support everyone here at school. 

Outside of school I like to be in the outdoors. I spend time camping, working on landscaping projects or just watching a bonfire with family or friends. I am married and have 2 adult children who are 20, and 23. They attend college at St. Cloud State and Mankato State. 

I am looking forward to another great year here at Barack and Michelle Obama Elementary!
