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 3rd year teaching for Mankato Public Schools. Overall this will be my 12th year of teaching. I spent nine years teaching in Montgomery for the Tri-City United and Montgomery-Lonsdale School Districts. I also spent one-year teaching at Ridgeway Community School near Winona. This school year I will be the full-time PE teacher at Hoover. I also am an assistant coach for Mankato East Baseball and the head coach for the Mankato American team in summer Legion Baseball.
My wife Nicole and I live in Mankato. 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 full-time and looking forward to a great school year!
