My family and I recently moved to May Township near Big Marine Lake. My wife (Carrie) and I met in my classroom while she was doing some volunteer work over twelve years ago. We have a five year old daughter named Francie, and a four year old son named Tallen. We have three dogs a Choc. Lab (Zoe,), her yellow lab son (Floyd), and a peekapoo (Roxie). Some of my hobbies include Hiking, Hunting, Fishing (Ice), Camping, Motorcycling, Mt. Biking, and walking the dogs with the family. I attended college and received degrees from Vermilion Community College, Bemidji State University for both undergraduate and graduate. My career begin in 1999 at Roosevelt Elementary School in St. Paul. I have taught 3rd grade, 4th grade and have been both a Science Specialist, and Social Studies Specialist for a total of eleven years. This is my fourteenth year of teaching and my fourth here at Crossroads. .
