Welcome to 5BA!
    For the last 15 years I have taught grades K, 1, 2, and 3 in Anoka-Hennepin and was a teacher on special assignment as a curriculum specialist. I have lived in Minnesota my whole life and am a proud graduate of the University of Minnesota. My wife and I have two boys, 7 and 9. We spend lots of time as a family outside together hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, camping, skiing, skating, and snowshoeing. I love all subjects in school, but science is my favorite. I look forward to supporting learners and thinkers through the process of inquiry by inviting them to make observations, ask questions, explore, research, investigate, and share what they've learned.
    Thank you for supporting your child's education! Let's make it a great year!
