Adam Flanders

Welcome to my Class Webpage!

My name is Adam Flanders.  I grew up in “Southside Minny” and am a product of Minneapolis Public Schools attending Cooper Elementary, Sanford Middle and South High School.

This is my 17th year as a teacher, with 15 of those years being in Minneapolis Public Schools, in eight different schools.  This is my 4th consecutive year at Roosevelt teaching math, and I am extremely grateful and appreciative to work in such a great atmosphere and climate with top notch students, teachers and staff in general.

Along with teaching at Roosevelt, I am also the Assistant Head Coach for the Roosevelt Football Team. We are a growing program and have improved (by record and other measures) every year for the last three consecutive years.  We look forward to continuing to build on that success.  To the right, you will see a picture with a caption that I often adhere to when not only coaching football, but teaching  as well.

I am married to my wonderful wife Jana-we celebrated our TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY this summer!!  YEAH!!  We have two daughters-Nola is 9 and Veya is 7. They keep us extremely busy participating in many activities including gymnastics, hockey, golf, volleyball and lacrosse.

We included a new addition to our family this past spring—our German Shepard, Kona.  She has been a challenge (biting, eating toilet paper—among other non-edible items/materials), but she is also a very affectionate and protective dog who shows us great love and care.
