Welcome to our Classroom Website
I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education/Early Childhood from Bemidji State University and a Masters Degree in Education from Hamline University. I began working at Hoover Elementary School in 1990. While at Hoover I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grade. Besides teaching 2nd grade I am a co-advisor for the Hoover Student Council.
My wife Sheryl and I live in Otsego (near Rogers). My wife Sheryl owns Stony Hill Gifts and Home Decor located in Rogers. Our daughter Kaylee is a student at University of Minnesota - Duluth. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, working in the garden, and helping out at my wife's store.
I enjoy my time with students at Hoover and like the excitement and creativity that teaching brings. I am constantly amazed at how quickly students learn and apply the skills they've been taught. My goal by the end of the year is to have made a difference in my student's lives, as they will certainly have done in mine.
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!
