My name is Jon Weill and I provide transportation to students from Maple Grove, Plymouth and Wayzata to and from Breakaway Academy. I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. I currently reside in Excelsior. Hobbies include golf, reading, and socializing whether face to face or via social media.
What do you like most about BA?
I enjoy the kids I drive and the parents have been awesome!
Why did you get into working with kids?
I used to coach hockey and baseball and I love watching kids exceed expectations and seeing their eyes light up when they accomplish something they didn’t think was possible.
Which coach or teacher had the biggest impact on your life and why?
Father Thole at St. John’s University really taught me how to think critically and write correctly whenever I have had to put pen to paper.
What is the best advice you can give students at BA?
Dream BIG! Establish that dream and do what you can, with the help of others, to achieve those dreams!
