I am a 1985 Graduate of Cleveland High School. I have been teaching for over 20 years at the high school level. I completed Bachelor's Degree from Mankato State University and have taken many graduate courses in a variety of areas. My Master's Degree is in Education with an emphasis on Curriculum & Instruction. I studied philosophy & theology for several years in a Catholic seminary before deciding on a career in teaching. My wife Jenny and I have been married for 14 years and have three children. Katie is 13 (she was born on our first anniversary...happy anniversary, dear), Stephanie is 11, and Jonathan is 6. I enjoy sports and collecting baseball cards. I am excited to be part of the CHS staff. This is home for me.
