Steven D. R. Orth
A 1992 graduate of Burnsville Senior High School, I grew up roughly one mile from Metcalf Middle School. Active in music, football, basketball, theater, peer helper groups, and peer leadership groups, I thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of opportunities available to me in the Burnsville School System.
After two years at the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis, I transferred to Augsburg College (also in Minneapolis) to begin my coursework in education. I graduated Augsburg in 1996 with a B.A. in English Education and Secondary Education.
I spent the first two years of my professional career at Brooklyn Center High School. I returned to Metcalf in 1998 as a seventh-grade Language Arts teacher and have enjoyed teaching students in grades 7-9.
Today, I continue to direct the Metcalf Drama Experience, the drama program that Cathy Mikel and I began in 1998.
Since coming to Metcalf, I have earned my Master's Degree in Educational Administration and my Administrative License through Saint Mary's University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
