I am happy to be back for my 16th year at Dakota Valley. I am excited about this year with the new fourth graders. We will work hard in the classroom and have some fun along the way.
A little bit about myself. I grew up in Atkinson, NE. ( About 2 1/2 hours from North Sioux City) I have one sister that lives in Hollister, MO. She is married and has three kids. I graduated from Buena Vista University in 1999. I taught fourth grade in Silver Creek, NE for 2 years. Then the school combined with other schools to form Twin River. At Twin River I taught 3rd and 4th grade class. I coached basketball and football at those schools. My wife, Melisa, is also a teacher here at Dakota Valley. She is a high school English, Sociology, and World History teacher. We have a son named Marcus and he will turn 5 years old this September.
Here at Dakota Valley I also coach. I coach High School Girls Basketball as the Junior Varsity Coach. I enjoy hanging out with family, playing golf, and shopping for Nike and Jordan shoes.
