Greeting Everyone!

I have been teaching for a bit over 18 years.  Special Education or Learner Support Services for roughly 13 of those years.  Before that I was a Social Studies teacher and taught at several schools 
throughout central Minnesota.  I reside in Moorhead, where I live with my wife and three children, ages 15, 12, and 6.  Most of my life outside of teaching and school I spend with 
my family, but I also enjoy movies, listening to the news and music of all kinds, playing drums, quiet time with a book, or doing projects around the house or yard.  
We we have an awesome Golden Retriever named Chance and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel / Chiwawa mix puppy named Rosie.
My wife is an OT at Fargo Schools.  My oldest son really likes his time with friends, his X-box, movies, deer hunting, cello, swimming, and being outside.  My daughter 
totally likes watching YouTube, playing with and training the dogs, playing with her "younger" brother, basketball, Spanish, piano, and movies.  
Our whole family takes a summer camping vacation to Duluth nearly each year, but we keep thinking one year we'll get to Washington D.C. before too many more years pass.  
I try to enjoy life when and where I can, and by all means, try to be with people who are positive and love learning new things.

I continue to have a philosphy "Sometimes you win, other times you learn."
