11th Grade
Social Studies

There is no school I would rather be at than North. My family and I have lived in North Minneapolis for almost 13 years. I have been teaching at North since 2012. I am currently teaching AP US History and US History. I love teaching history and watching students make connections from past events to their present experiences. I also enjoy watching my students engage history rather than simply learn about history. My goals is for students to become historians in my class and make their own sense of the past rather than simply accept someone else's perspective. We spend a great deal of time analyzing, discussing and writing about primary sources from the past. I can't think of another school or subject that I would enjoy more. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife Jennifer and my two kids Logan (7) and Maddie (5).
