Welcome! I'm excited for a great year and I'm looking forward to getting to know and work with our students. I've been teaching in the Anoka-Hennepin school district for seventeen years, all as a fourth grade teacher here at Rum River Elementary. I finished my undergraduate work at Luther College (Decorah, IA), earning a bachelors degree in elementary education. I've also earned my Masters in Education from St. Mary's University (Winona, MN). I enjoy reading, carpentry, metal fabrication, golf and hockey. I have been a resident of Minnesota my entire life and enjoy the outdoors regardless of the season. I currently live in Ramsey, MN with my wife, Janelle, and our two daughters.
