About me:

This is my 2nd year teaching math at Roosevelt High School. I am currently teaching 4 sections of Advanced Algebra and one section of College Prep Algebra and Statistics (CPAS). This is my 16th year teaching math in the Minneapolis Public Schools. I taught for 12 years at Patrick Henry HS and I also taught for 2 years at Southwest HS. I have taught many different courses over my tenure in Minneapolis from basic math up to Calculus. I am very passionate about teaching mathematics to kids and I look forward to working with you this year!

I am also a product of the Minneapolis Public Schools. I attended North Star (now closed), Waite Park, Northeast Junior High and Edison High School. After graduating from Edison, I went to the University of Minnesota where I received my

Shannon, Ella and Ethan in Colorado
B.A. in Mathematics and my teaching licensure(2000). I also recived my Masters Degree in education from the U of M in 2007. I am proud to be a lifelong learner and I always look forward to learning new things.

When I'm not at school, I love to spend time with my family and friends. I am an avid golfer (and former golf coach) and I love watching most sports in person or on television. I am a huge fan of all Gopher athletic teams and I'm also a big fan of the Vikings, Twins, Wild and Timerwolves. I also enjoy watching movies, playing video games, going out to eat and traveling. 

 

My family:

My wife (Shannon) is also a math teacher but she works across the river in St. Paul. I have a daughter Ella (10 yrs old) and a son Ethan (7 yrs old). My kids both currently attend Dowling Elementary School in Minneapolis......interesting fun fact: my daughter, my son and I all had the same kindergarten teacher just at different schools (me at North Star and my kids at Dowling).
