I have been a school social worker for over 20 years, and most of those years in an elementary school setting. I started in the ISD#191 district in 2014. My current role is in helping address social-emotional challenges that affect student's ability to learn. This is sometimes referred to as early intervention. I am a graduate of Augsburg College and the University of Minnesota in Duluth. I am the proud father of 2 grown children, and grandfather to 6. I enjoy many outdoor activities, yet thoroughly enjoy my career working with children.
