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 11th year teaching at North. My family and I have lived in North Minneapolis for over 19 years. I love teaching 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. This year I will be teaching 2 sections of a University of Minnesota US History class. I 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. When I am not teaching I enjoy coaching football at North and spending time with amazing wife Jen who will also be teaching at North this year and our two kids we love so much, Logan (14) and Maddie (12).
