It is a pleasure to welcome you to Hoover Elementary School. I am honored to serve as the principal of a school with such highly motivated staff, dedicated parents, and remarkable students.

As the principal, I value your input and perspective. I encourage you to be involved in your child's education. You are welcome to be involved at Hoover in a number of ways throughout the school year. I look forward to getting to know all of our Hoover families as we work together in providing the very best for our students.

Hoover is a K-5 neighborhood school located in upper North Mankato. We currently enroll about 575 students. We strive to ensure that Hoover is a place where students are eager to come to learn, parents are excited to send their children, and our staff are proud to come to work.

My wife, Cindra, and I have two children, Carter and Blake.
My hobbies and interests include sports, running, family time, exploring Minnesota, and playing guitar.

I look forward to continuing Hoover's rich traditions of academic excellence with a dedicated professional staff and high level of parental involvement. Hoover is a great place to learn and a great place to work! Please get involved with Hoover!

Hoover welcomes visitors and parents to our building. If you have questions please call the office.
