I have lived in the Milwaukee metropolitan area for most of my life. I
have a wonderful wife Kirstie, a 9 year old girl named Abigail, two boys, Micah David, who
is now 7 years old and Peter Zion who is 3. We enjoy long walks,
reading, camping, traveling, and just having fun. Kirstie's dad lives in
Vail, CO, so of course we always look forward to visiting the mountains. We
are still new to Colgate, and are enjoying the area very much.
I graduated with a B.A. from Concordia University in Mequon in May of
2000. Seven years ago I achieved a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction
from National Louis University. I recently finished taking technology classes
at NLU to enhance my skills in the classroom, as well as the computer lab.
This is my eleventh consecutive year teaching fifth grade in the Germantown
District. Many of you knew me from when I taught second grade here at Amy
Belle. I also taught eighth grade at KMS during one year. I am glad to be
here at Amy Belle and thoroughly enjoy working with fifth graders.
My personal interests include biking, reading, playing with Abigail,
Micah, and Peter, going to church, cooking, and quiet times with my wife. This is my
sixteenth year teaching, and I can honestly say I enjoy it more every year.
Preparing students for life.
