I was also in knowledge bowl.  I received my Associate’s Degree from Ridgewater College in Willmar, Minnesota in 1997.  I received my bachelor’s degree from St. Cloud State University in 2000.  In 2005 I received a Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s University. 
    •  At home I like to spend time with my wife and two daughters.  My oldest is 3 years old and my youngest was born in May of 2014.  When I get some free time, I like to see movies, read the newspaper, watch sports on tv, and play volleyball.  
    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!
