Mr. Traphagen's Computer/STEM Lab
I graduated from Belmont Abbey College in 2004 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education and Therapeutic Recreation. I worked as an admissions counselor for Belmont Abbey before moving to Lancaster. I received my Social Studies teaching certificate from University of Phoenix in 2008. This is my 11th year teaching at St. Anne's. I am married and have two daughters and a Golden Retriever named Pretzel. I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking and woodworking!
