Welcome to Mr. Gast's Website
    I have been teaching for 19 years already.  This is my 9th year teaching First Grade at Hamilton. I have been at Hamilton for the past 12 years, previously teaching 4th and 2nd grades.  I have truly enjoyed each and every year.  How does the saying go?  Find a job that you love to do and you will never work another day in your life.  That is where I am at.  I have been married for 19 years and have two beautiful children.  One is a Junior in high school, and the other is in 6th grade, both going to a school in the Anoka Hennepin School District. 
    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!
