Meet the Teacher
It's hard to believe it, but as the school year flies towards winter break, I am already well into my fourth year of teaching 6th grade math in a rural Wisconsin school district! My wife, Nicole, and I have been married for two years. She teaches first grade in the same district. I look forward to a couple of years, when I get to have some of her students in 6th grade math for the first time!
There are a lot of reasons I am where I am today, but let's start with one of the biggest, my family (yes...that family you see below!). It's safe to say teaching runs in my family. My mom and dad both spent careers in education: my mom a first grade teacher and my dad the principal of my high school. My parents have shown me the importance of education and the impact educators can have in the lives of students! Both of my older brothers have also been a big inspiration for me. One of my brothers is a high school choir director and the other is a civil engineer. I always look forward to seeing my four nephews and nieces!
For those who know me, they can tell you that one of my biggest passions is baseball. I grew up playing it and following it with my two brothers (yes, you can play baseball with three people if you are creative) and have loved it ever since. I currently coach the high school team in my district and still play on the local team during the summer.
