IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PARENTS:

The phone number I have listed is my personal cell phone number. If at any point this school year we have to go to distance learning I believe it is important for students and families to be able to access me directly. If I am not in the middle of teaching I will attempt to take texts and calls from 7:30AM-3:30PM. You can always leave a message and I will get back to you within 24 hours. IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR CHILD TO DIRECTLY CONTACT ME THROUGH MY PHONE PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL CERTAINLY HONOR AND RESPECT YOUR WISHES.

ABOUT ME

I absolutely love being a teacher at Minneapolis North Community High School. This will be my 10th year teaching at North. My family and I have lived in North Minneapolis for over 18 years. I love teaching AP US History because if we want to understand and confront all the problems facing our country today we must understand the deep roots of these problems. I want students to become historians rather than just learn about history from one perspective. I want my students to analyze multiple perspectives from our past to come to their own conclusions and solutions. We will spend a great deal of time analyzing, discussing and writing about primary sources from the past together as a learning community. I also love helping students taking a college level course and gaining the confidence that they can compete academically with any students across the country and across the world. I am also excited to be teaching US Government and Economics for the first time this year. I am excited to work work with seniors this year for the first time. When I am not teaching I enjoy coaching my son's football team and spending time with amazing wife Jen and our two kids we love so much, Logan (13) and Maddie (11).
