Now on a personal note, I wanted to share with you my philosophy on education. My philosophy includes valuing all students and promoting the importance of education. A theme throughout my career in education has been making a difference and opening doors for young people. I believe that by working with students, parents, staff, and community, great things can be accomplished. I also know that all children can learn and be successful given the proper instruction, guidance, and support.
With that being said, I come to Nicollet with 17 years of experience in education. I spent 14 years in the classroom teaching 3rd-11th grade in 3 different states (CA, NV, and MN). The majority of my teaching experience though was teaching math at the middle school level. For the past 3 years, I served as the Dean of Students at Little Falls Community Middle School. My wife, Christina, and I have two children; Taitem who is 4 years old and Tianna who is 9 months old. This Fall, they both will be starting at NECC. Taitem is very excited to start at his new school!
In my spare time (if there is such a thing haha!) my family and I enjoy anything that involves being outside. I also try to find activities for the entire family to enjoy. I love being able to watch my kids run around and play. I am definitely a sports fanatic and enjoy playing and watching them when I get a chance. I wanted to let you all know how excited that my family and I are at becoming a part of the Nicollet Public School family. The entire Nicollet Public School staff would like to thank you ahead of time for your support and look forward to working with you. Please contact me anytime at 507-232-3411 (ext. 3118).
