Hello! Welcome to my teacher page for Tea Area Schools!
A little bit about me:

I grew up in Britton, South Dakota before going to college in Madison, where I obtained a bachelors degree in K-8 Elementary Education as well as K-12 Special Education. During my time at DSU, I was a captain of the football team, a Student Ambassador, and a member of the choir. I also began coaching wrestling at Madison High school during my time in Madison. 

I taught 6th grade for two years in Omaha, where my wife attended PA school, before moving to the Sioux Falls area. This is my third year at Tea Area High school, and I have fallen in love with our district and the Tea community!
