Hello! I am SO HONORED and EXCITED to be your child’s fourth grade teacher for the 2018-19 school year! This is my second year at Crooked Lake Elementary (last year I taught third grade) and 13th year as classroom teacher.
I grew up in Duluth and received my BA degree in Elementary Education from UW-Superior as well as my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from St. Catherine University.
Although we are currently living in Delano, we are in the process of moving to the area! My beautiful wife, three girls (Julia-8, Lucy-6, and Sylvia-3), and I are super excited to be a part of this amazing community! In my spare time I enjoy camping, running, skiing, and tea parties with my girls :)
I'd like to welcome you to visit our class anytime. This is your child’s class and in that way it is your class as well. You are the most knowledgeable and important person in your child’s life so I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.
I'm truly looking forward to working with you and your youngster through a positive and successful school year! GO EAGLES!!
