Mr. Birkholz

Welcome to our classroom! I am excited for this school year, and to be a part of Stewartville Public Schools.

My name is Joe Birkholz, and I will be teaching 7th Grade U.S. History and 9th Grade World History. Some information about myself:

  • I am originally from Taylors Falls, MN, and graduated from Chisago Lakes High School in 2009.
  • I attended the University of Minnesota, graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor's Degree in History. I was also a member of the University of Minnesota Marching Band.
  • After graduation, I worked for a lobbyist at the Minnesota Legislature, working on outdoor recreation, water quality, and some economic issues.
  • I was a member of Winona State-Rochester's "Teacher Preparation Collaborative," a 13-month internship program where I spent a year doing my student teaching at Century High School in Rochester.
