Welcome to the 4th grade family! I am excited to be a part of this journey with the staff, students, parents, and all of those who support HLWW schools.
I started teaching at Winsted Elementary during the 2007-08 school year and throughout my time here I have taught grades 4 and 5. I was an undergraduate of Bethel University where I received my BA in Elementary Education. In the Spring of 2012 I received my Masters Degree from St. Mary's University.
I grew up in Monticello, MN where I spent the majority of my time playing sports with my brothers and friends. I come from a family of Educators. Both my mother and father were teachers and many of my other relatives have either been or are currently in the education field.
When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife Tasha, daughters Kinley and Kendall, and dog Cuse like to go on walks and play in the park. We also enjoy being on lakes fishing and getting some sun. You may also find me in a gym or on the golf course. I have coached basketball for 6 years now and am the boys head golf coach.
I am looking forward to being a piece of a wonderful journey for all of these students who enter our doors. Go Lakers!
