Degrees and Certifications:
I went to High School at Grand Rapids, MN. Then I graduated from Bemidji State University. My teaching career began in Mission, South Dakota, on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in a combination classroom of 6, 7th, and 8th graders. Following my two years in Mission, I spent one year in a fourth grade setting at McGregor, MN. Finally, I made my way to LCWM and have been a teacher and coach for 31 years in the school district. I am currently teaching 6th grade Physical Science and Reading/Language Arts while coaching Varsity Boy's Basketball and Baseball.
I am married to my wife, Jeanne, who is a teacher at St. Peter High School. We have 2 sons Ryan (30 years old) and Drew (28 years old).
