Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching at the American Indian Magnet since 1997. All of my years have been in sixth grade. I received my Bachelors Degree from Hamline University in 1996. I earned a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Southwest State University in 2001.
I live in Blaine with my wife Meredith and my three sons, Jake, Henry and Sam. I enjoy the outdoors,
and spend time hunting and fishing many weekends. I grew up in a small town in central Minnesota, and travel back there often to go camping. On weekends, you will often find me outside tinkering with the yard or playing with my boys.
I really enjoy teaching the fifth grade because the students have a great sense of humor and always keep my job interesting. I
like to read new books that I know my students will enjoy. My favorite subject to teach is math because I think it is exciting when the students learn something new. I really enjoy this school because the staff are friendly and really care about the students and each other.
