I was born and raised in Northern Minnesota. I graduated from high school in Warren, MN, and earned my Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of North Dakota. I went on to receive my Masters and sixth-year certificate from Minnesota State University-Mankato in 1999. I was an elementary teacher for 12 years before moving over to Lincoln High School in 2000, where I was the Associate Principal for 17 years. I also coached basketball, football and golf for many years in our district.
I am married to my wonderful wife, Joyce, and we have two daughters, Brooke and Madison, who both graduated from Lincoln High School. I am honored to call Thief River Falls my home. If there is anything I can do, please don't hesitate to contact me.
From the Principal's Desk
Welcome to Lincoln High School. As you will be able to see throughout our site, Lincoln High School offers many academic and activity opportunities for our students. We are a 1:1 digital environment with all students using a MacBook Air laptop computer throughout the day to enhance their learning experience. Lincoln High School has become recognized for its intentional, research based, college and career programming for all of its students. Lincoln High School staff take seriously our opportunity to help students prepare for "Life after Lincoln." While you can't physically see the supportive culture that Lincoln High School has between students and staff, you can certainly feel it. Our students feel a connection within our school, and our faculty works diligently to provide meaningful learning experiences for our students.
