Who am I? I have been married to my best friend Sandy for 20 years. Together, we have one son (Michael) who is working at Men's Warehouse in Duluth MN. I enjoy helping others. For the past 7 years, I have organized a Four Wheeling Fundraiser in honor of my dad who passed away in 2012 from Esophageal/Bladder Cancer. This fundraiser has raised over $40,000.00 to benefit the Superior Youth Organization (baseball, softball). I have been a high school basketball official for 33 years. Additionally, I was a Conference Commissioner for 12 high schools. I also enjoy golfing. I was a President and Board Member and League Commissioner for the Nemadji Men's Club at my home course in Superior WI.
I am excited to be starting this journey at BGHS. Although I have over 11 years of teaching experience, I consider this year to be my First teaching career. Previously, I was a Substitute Teacher with the Superior School District in Superior WI for 8 years. During that time, I decided to pursue my Bachelor’s Degree in CTE Marketing and Business Education through the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie WI. During my education, I was given the opportunity to teach at Ashland High School in Ashland WI. While at Ashland High School, I taught Marketing I, Accounting I, Business Law, Personal Finance & Careers. From there, I finished my student teaching at Cloquet Senior High School in Cloquet MN. During my student teaching time, I taught Marketing I, Computer Applications, and Computer Creations. After receiving my degree and licensure in CTE Marketing and Business Education, I taught Physical Education for one year at Duluth Edison Charter Schools.
If you hang out with me, I'll condition you into believing in yourself and knowing you can achieve anything!!
