This is my twenty-sixth year as a teacher in the WACS school system, and my 18th year teaching third grade students. I have taught second grade children for three years at Cathedral School. Previously I taught five years at St. Stanislaus Middle School, both grade 5 classroom and grades 5-8 music. I graduated from Winona State University in 1980 with a B.S. degree in Elementary Education 1-6 and Music Education K-12.
My wife, Lori is an independent music engraver and piano teacher. We have been married 30 years and have two children, Britta, and Lydia. Britta is twenty-seven, working in Los Angeles as a clothes designer, and Lydia is twenty-two, working in Chicago as a dancer including instructing and choreographing dance. Our family loves swimming and water activities. Music and dance are also an important part of our lives.
