Due to summer construction, in addition to our school year ending early this year (last day May 27th, 2022 at 12:15), we will also be starting school a week later this coming 2022-2023 school year.

Start of the 2022-2023 School Year:
September 7th: Back to School Night

September 12th: 1st Day of High School (ELEM individually scheduled testing day) 
September 13th: 1st Day of Elementary School



We have received many inquiries regarding summer SAC. Due to the scheduled construction at the school this summer, we have been looking into other options. Unfortunately, we couldn't secure an alternate location. Therefore, we are unable to offer summer SAC this year. Thank you for your understanding.

Hello and welcome to my website. This is the place where you can find out a little about me and aplace to find information about the different class I will be teaching this year. On this site you will find my expectations and my philosophy of teaching.

Now a little bit about me. This is my 12th year at Mabel-Canton and I am very excited about this school year. I am looking forward to being part of our students growth in education and into young adulthood. I previously spent 5 1/2 years teaching in Stewartville at the middle school. I was hired there right out of college and had a very good experience there. It was a tough decision to leave but decided to make the change because of the people in the Mabel - Canton district. As a former student of Mabel-Canton, I believe I received a good education with many opportunities with in the district. I like the small town and small school atmosphere.

After graduating from Mabel-Canton in 1997 I attended the University of Wisconsin STOUT in Menomonie, WI. I started my educational experience in a design field but after 2 years decided that this was not what I wanted to do. I changed my major to Technology Education (Industrial Technology). This was definitely a good move for me. I love teaching and I enjoy being able to coach and watch individuals mature.

I received my Masters in Technology Education from St. Cloud State University in 2007. I have also received a certification in Work-Based Learning and Career and Technical Education from Bemidji State University.

I've been married for 16 years to my wonderful wife Sarah. We have 4 boys, who keep us very busy. The oldest, Jaymeson, is 15 and is in 9th grade, the middle children, Cayden (13), who is in 7th  grade, Brevyn who is 9 and is in 3rd grade, and Treyson who is 8 and in 2nd grade. It is amazing how fast they grow up. Each day is an adventure! 

This is a little information about me and my family. I look forward to having a positive impact on the students in this community.
