I have been the Dean of Students at Challenger since 2015. I spent my first nine years in education teaching high school social studies in Arizona, and Grygla. I am also the head Prowler girls basketball coach. I received my Bachelors degree in secondary social studies from UND in 2006, my Masters from MSUM (and principals licensure) in 2016. My wife teaches 4th grade in Newfolden, where we live. My son Parker was born in 2009, and my daughter Kora was born in 2013. We have a chocolate lab named Remmie. I love my job and am thankful to work for the Thief River Falls school district. I also love coaching basketball, hunting, fishing, music, and spending quality time with my family.
