Hi, my name is Paul Dudley and I am the Head Physical Education Specialist here at Rum River Elementary in Andover. After 9 years of splitting my time between two schools, the 2010-2011 school year was my full time year at Rum River!
I also keep busy updating Rum River's web site, as much as I can. I am currently in my 19th year at Rum River (24th overall in Anoka-Hennepin). I have also worked as the PE teacher at Franklin Elementary (14 years), an itinerant at Andover Elementary, and as a substitute teacher for two school districts, Anoka-Hennepin #11 and Fridley #14.
I enjoy many things outside of school including bowling, hockey, golf, tennis, football, and any other type of outdoor activity. I currently volunteer on the chain gang at the Andover Huskies home football games.
I am married and have two beautiful daughters. Molly is in graduate school at St. Cloud State University working on her masters in Psychology and Ally is a college senior double majoring in Psychology and Social Work at Morningside College (Sioux City, Ia) and is on the bowling team. My wife is also a teacher, 5th grade right here at Rum River.
My experiences at Rum River have been very enjoyable and I hope to continue for a long time, as the staff, parents and students are great. Thanks for coming to meet me and I hope we can meet in person some time here at school. To contact me, please use the Contact Mr. Dudley link on the left side of this page.
