It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to my classroom. I have taught for over a decade in diverse classrooms across Southern MN. I attended Rochester Community Technical College and Winona State University for undergraduate work in Elementary Education and Middle School Communication Arts and Literature and Bethel University for my Graduate Studies in Special Education with emphasis in Learning Disabilities and Emotional Behavioral Disorders. I read scholarly journals and academic literature to keep updated with current scientific based teaching strategies. I am an enthusiast of the guitar and have composed original music and even have copyrights to them.I am a father, husband and a pet owner to a lovable Japanese Chin. I love what I do, teaching, and hope to do it for many more years to come.
