Welcome to Science Class!!!
I am excited to be starting my first year at Andover High School and my 16th year of teaching high school science. I spent the first six years of my career teaching/coaching in Colorado and the past 9 years teaching/coaching at Princeton High School. While in Colorado, I also taught college biology and anatomy and physiology for Morgan Community College. During my career I have taught all the science subject areas. This year I will be teaching 9th grade Honors Physical Science, Physical Science A, and Physical Science B. I have a bachelors degree in Biology Secondary Education from the College of St. Scholatica and a Masters Degree from St Mary's University of Minnesota.
I have a passion for coaching. I have coached both football and baseball at the varsity level for the last 16th years as both a head coach and assistant. I have been coaching my son Bryson's football, baseball and wrestling team for the past 4 years. I am the varsity running backs coach for Andover this year. I enjoy spending time with my wife Megan and our three children. Mya will be in eigth grade this year, Bryson will be in 4th grade, and Ryder will be in kindergarden. I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, fishing, camping, traveling, four-wheeling and watching my favorite sports team the Minnesota Vikings!
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
Google Classroom: Students in my class will receive a google classroom code at the start of the trimester. This is where you can find classroom notes, resources, reminders, and some assignments for the course. If you are a parent that would like to receive all the google classroom notifications for this class, feel free to email me and I will add you to the class.
