This is my third year teaching high school math, and my second at Mahtomedi. When I'm not in the classroom, you can likely find me spending time with my wife, our newborn son Chase, and my dog, playing soccer or football, coaching football, relaxing while playing video games, and getting out into the wilderness for some camping. Admittedly, all of that extra stuff has decreased significantly since the birth of our son!
In addition to teaching Algebra II and Geometry Concepts at Mahtomedi, I also coach 9th grade football with the school.
The last thing I will leave you with for now, is to again emphasize that I am here to help and support you. There is a sign in my classroom that says "Mistakes are... Expected. Respected. Inspected. Corrected." You will probably make a mistake this year, and you will probably not understand something right away. Please know that this is part of the process, and part of your brains growing. How you respond to a mistake made will show when there is growth taking place.
I'm looking forward to a great year!
