Classical School Directory
As I enjoy my fifth year at Classical School, I realize more every day what a special place it is. The staff is amazing, and everyone I speak to about Classical has wonderful things to say. I strive to continue the tradition of providing students with an excellent education.
My family moved around a lot growing up giving me a broad range of experiences. Eventually, they settled in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, which I consider home. I attended high school at Northwestern Preparatory School in Watertown. After graduating from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota, I taught upper grades at a school in Hopkins, Michigan. Then, I went back to school full-time at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City. The plan was to pursue a degree in chemical engineering, but I very soon realized that my true passion was for teaching. From there I taught intermediate grades in Port Orchard and later upper grades in Yakima, both in the beautiful state of Washington.
In 2010, I had the opportunity to move back to Wisconsin to teach 6th grade at Trinity Lutheran School in Neenah. I am happy to be back in my home state and love teaching 6th grade. Since 2014, I have been able to bring all of my experience and dedication to Classical. I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity. I enjoy getting to know the students and families that make Classical a great place to teach and learn.
My wife and I enjoy living in Appleton and getting involved with the many great activities this area has to offer. We have four children, ages 13 to 19, and love spending time together as a family.
