I have been teaching for the LSH School District for 35 years, starting in the Henderson School District in 1979. I retired in 2013 and came back to teach part time. In those 30 years I have coached many sports at all different levels. I have also taught all different types of Industrial Tech. classes from Drafting to Woodworking.  At the present time I only teach Welding and Small Engines.

After I retired I only plan to coach track, I would like to say I coached for 35 years so I have to coach this year. In the past I have coached 7th grade football, 8th grade girls basketball and both the girls and boys track. With the track program I work mainly with the throwing events and for the past few seasons my son has been helping me coach, and that has been a lot of fun. 

I have been married for 34 years and have 3 kids, and 4 grand child. My wife's name is Sandy and she works at Sibley Medical Center in Arlington. Heather is my oldest, she is married to Scott Thomes and they have two child, one is named Brook and she is 6 years old and in first grade and Carter is almost 4, they live in Shakopee. Heather works in the Medical records field and Scott works with computers, My oldest son Chad is single and works in NDT field with his brother. My youngest son Todd is married to Jenifer and has a step son Brandon and they just had a baby boy named Tucker. Todd works in the NDT field based out of Duluth with his older brother and Jennifer works in the District Office here at LSH. Chad lives in Arlington and Todd and his family live in Gaylord. 

My grand daughter Brooke was born on my birthday, I thought that was pretty neat. I guess I will never forget her birthday. 

In my free time I like to hunt, fish and I enjoy any time of sports. I have been trying to golf with my two sons but I need more practice.
