Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from Roseau High School in 1981 and Bemidji State University in 1986. I took my first teaching job in the fall of 1986 at Thief River Falls Lincoln High School. While in TRF I taught a variety of math classes to students in grades 9-12. I also coached football, hockey and baseball as part of my responsibilites. My time in Thief River Falls came to an end when I took a leave of absence to get married to Bonnie Dehlin and pursue a masters degree at UND. While working on my graduate degree an opportunity to return to Roseau opened up. I was hired to teach math and coach football in Roseau beginning in the fall of 1994. My wife and I have been in Roseau ever since. Bonnie and I have three children, Kate, Dan and Rebecca.
