I graduated from Kanawha High School in 1983. I received my B.S. degree from Iowa State University in elementary education. I obtained my M.A. from Northwestern College in Orange City. I began my teaching career at Orange City Elementary School in 1989 as a second grade teacher. I began working in the Media Center in 1998 where I enjoy reading to students of all ages and helping teachers work with media.
Life Outside Orange City Elementary
I'm married to Julie and we have two daughters and a son-in-law, Andrea Andersen, Angel & Tom Clarey. In the fall of 2008, we moved to our current home in Alton. I have two labs named Maddie and Lily. As a family we enjoy fishing, skiing, boating, and many other outdoor activities. We attend Trinity Reformed Church. I am a loyal Minnesota Viking's and Iowa State Cyclone's fan.
