I’m married to my wife Melanie who is the general manager at a Holiday Inn Epress. I have one brother who lives in El Paso, Texas. My Mother and Father live in Sioux Falls, SD along with our family pet Barkley. Barkley is a shiatsu and he has lived with our family for about eight years now.
I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Physical Education at South Dakota State University, which is located in Brookings, SD. I played basketball there for four years and my main hobby is playing basketball, hanging with my family, being active and being outdoors boating and camping in the summer is one of my favorite things to do. After my four years at South Dakota State I completed my Masters degree in Administration at Concordia University, NE. I’m always looking to improve myself with my education and further my learning on a daily basis.
My main goal as Physical Education teacher is to get the students actively engaged in exercise so they can understand the meaning and importance of staying healthy every single day. My top three goals are: Teaching body management skills, promoting physical fitness as fun, and developing teamwork, sportsmanship, and cooperation.
