I am excited to be joining the Bulldog family as the new 7th-8th grade language arts teacher and CIS instructor. This is my first year teaching middle school and high school, but I have an extensive background in both education and English. I earned both an B.A. and M.A. in English from South Dakota State University and am finishing a Master's of Ed. through Minnesota State Mankato. Previously, I taught composition at SDSU for five years. I have also worked for several years as a paraprofessional, a substitute teacher, and a long-term sub. I am passionate about English and student learning, and I look forward to helping students become life-long learners.
My wife and I live in town, and she teaches science down at GSL. We have a two year old daughter that keeps us busy when we are home. Outside of school you can probably find me out on a lake fishing or reading a book with a good cup of coffee. I also enjoy playing the occasional round of golf when I am able to find time.
Here's to great year!
p.s. Stop in to see the piranha.
