Math Teacher


I was born and raised in Napa California and now live in Edina with my wife and two daughters, Kirsi and Aili.

Why did you get into education?
Education is in my DNA. My brother and sister are teachers as well.

Which coach or teacher had the biggest impact on your life and why?
Sean Gregory, my 9th and 10th math teacher, as well as my older brother who was my youth soccer coach. They both created an environment where I learned and enjoyed the process.

What is the best advice you can give students at BA?
Grades alone do not complete you as a student.

What are your credentials and teaching experience?
I graduated from the University of Minnesota, receiving both a Bachelor of Science and a Masters, both in Education.

I have an Elementary Education license, and a Middle School license both in Mathematics and Social Studies.

I have taught a total of twenty-three years.
