Welcome to 5A!
I am excited to work with your family for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year!
This will be my 8th year at Monroe Elementary and 6th year teaching in 5th grade. I grew up in Muskegon, Michigan, straight across Lake Michigan from Milwaukee. In 2012, I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Elementary Education and I completed my Master's from St. Cloud in Educational Administration and Leadership in 2016.
My wonderful wife Devan and I just celebrated our three year anniversary in July. We spent our summer, like many, staying safe at home and enjoying St. Louis Park, the city we live in. We went on many walks and I biked over 200 miles, exploring different trails.
I love playing and watching (Detroit) sports, but mostly just being outside. You can find me on a biking trail, playing volleyball, softball, broomball or dodgeball. I also enjoy playing drums and I was a part of the Michigan State Drumline for 4 years.
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 student achieve success!
