Welcome to our Classroom Website

    This is my 20th year of teaching in Anoka-Hennepin. I have been at Andover for seven years, but this will be my first as a 3rd grade teacher. In addition to teaching, I have been an assistant hockey coach at Andover High School since 2006.

    As many of you know, my wife, Heather, is a 1st grade teacher in the building. I met her several years ago while attending the University of Alaska Fairbanks. One of the benefits of marrying an Alaska girl is that our family has the opportunity to visit there on a regular basis, and I love sharing stories of our Alaska adventures with the students.

    I have two wonderful children who attend Andover High School. My son, Mason, is a sophomore and likes to play hockey, baseball, and currently plays a lot of Fortnite. My daughter, Molly, is a freshman and enjoys soccer, basketball, running track, and really likes shopping with her mom.

    I’m very excited about teaching a new grade level and working with your child. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
