I am originally from Albert Lea, MN. I attended Winona State University, where I received my undergraduate degree in K-12 Physical Education and Pre K-12 Developmental/Adaptive Physical Education.
This will be my 2nd year teaching for Mankato Public Schools. Overall this will be my 11th year of teaching. I spent 9 years teaching in Montgomery for the Tri-City United and Montgomery-Lonsdale School Districts. I also spend 1 year teaching at Ridgeway Community School near Winona. This school year I will be at Hoover and Kennedy teaching Physical Education. I also am an assistant coach for Mankato East Baseball.
My wife Nicole and I just moved to Mankato this summer. We enjoy taking our chocolate lab Macie on walks/jogs. I like to spend my free time being active by playing softball, volleyball, and basketball whenever I can. I enjoy watching and following all sports, especially Minnesota sports teams.
I'm very excited to be at Hoover and Kennedy and look forward to a great school year!
