Graduated from LeSueur-Henderson High School Went to Southwest Minnesota State University to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics Education. I received my Masters of Science Degree from SMSU in Mathematics Education.

I have taught in the Paynesville Area School District for 7 years. I live in Paynesville with My wife, two daughters and my dog cooper. I am the Head Varsity Boys Basketball coach. I enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors, sports, and being with my family and friends.

I strive to create an atmosphere of learning in my classroom that involves open discussion, freedom to ask questions, and a cooperative effort to try our best. My best classes have been the interactive classes and I strive to create that atmosphere in the classroom. I use appropriate humor and personal experience to lighten the serious subject that is math.
