Welcome to Mr. Summers Teacher Page

Throughout the 2017-2018 School Year I will be traveling between East and West High Schools.

Email will be the easiest way to reach me throughout the school year:

East Room 106 Phone Number:  Ext 3655
West Room 1207 Phone Number: Ext 3902


This will be my fourth year at Mankato Schools (East and West H.S.). I have previously taught Chemistry and Physical Science at Jordan High School.  I received my B.S. in Health Science and B.S. in Biology from the University of Minnesota-Crookston along with my M.A. in teaching from Bethel University.  I am married to Sarah Summers and we have a daughter, Penelope, and son, Parker. 

Coaching is also an activity that I enjoy because working with students in and out of the classroom reminds me of how things were for me in high school with multiple activities taking place.  In the past I have helped coach students with swimming, cross country, and track & field.  Currently I am the East Girls Swimming and Diving Head Coach and the East Boys Swimming and Diving Assistant Coach.
