I have been a Health/PE/DAPE Teacher and Coach in Spring Lake Park for 29 years and was named 2016 Secondary Teacher of the Year in Spring Lake Park Schools. I have coached adapted bowling, football and hockey, as well as track and field at all levels over the past 31 years. I have also been involved with our strength/conditioning program at SLPHS. I am currently teaching full-time DAPE at SLPHS and both Westwood Schools, coaching our freshmen football team, our adapted bowling team/coordinating adapted athletics, instructing strength & conditioning and coaching throwing events in track and field.
I graduated from White Bear Lake Sr. High School (1985); hold a BS Degree in Physical Education from St. Cloud State (1990) and a MA Degree in Administration of Athletics from the University of St. Thomas (1996).
My family consists of: myself, my wife Kelli, who is a Business-Ed Teacher at North St. Paul Sr. High and daughters Avery (UMD-track), Gabby (UWRF-tennis) and Sonya (9th) attending school and playing sports in Mahtomedi. I enjoy attending church, time with my family, the YMCA, playing golf, hockey, biking, fishing, reading, coaching and attending sporting events.
My passion in education is teaching, coaching and mentoring teenagers! I very much enjoy being a teacher and coach in our dynamic profession to the students in Spring Lake Park Schools!
