About Me

This is my 15th year of teaching. I’ve had the privilege of teaching 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders here at Minnewaska. 

My wife Jennie and I have four children Emma, Maddie, Megan, and Cavin. I grew up right here in Glenwood just half a block from the elementary school.  My wife grew up in Starbuck, so we are lucky to have family and friends living close to us.
