I am a 4th Grade Teacher at Lowell Elementary in the Brainerd School District.
I began teaching in the fall of 1993 and have been at Lowell the entire time. I have taught 2nd grade, Reading Recovery, and 4th grade.

I attended Southwest State University in Marshall, MN (now Southwest Minnesota State University) for my undergrad, and obtained a Master's Degree from St. Thomas University.

My family includes my 3 sons and my wife (also a teacher). We enjoy travelling, cabin time, sports, boating, reading, video games, and spending time with family and church family.
