Welcome to 5A!
I am excited to work with your family for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year!
This will be my 7th year at Monroe Elementary and 5th 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 two year anniversary in July. We were very fortunate to go to Europe and Northern Africa this summer for 8 weeks and visit 7 different countries. Once we got back, I spent a lot of time outside and working on our house.
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!
