FINALS for Music Appreciation are the week of June 5.
Born in Minnesota, I am fortunate to have been educated in an excellent public school system. In high school I lettered in hockey, played French horn and tuba in band and orchestra, drum major in marching band (DRUMLINE), sang in choir, and acted and danced in theater. Originally a music major in college, I switched majors and colleges a few times (from Music to English History to Composition to Education) before graduating with a B.S. in Elementary Education and Special Education from Minnesota State University at Mankato. For almost 20 years I worked with and for people with disabilities in a wide range of settings and capacities; in direct care, administration and as a professional advocate and lobbyist. I have also worked as a professional musician, maintenance man, landscaper, waiter, public and motivational speaker, consultant, expert witness, and trainer.
A lifelong idealist, I was attracted to the open field of charter schools, and the challenging goal of developing a unique school for committed students was exciting. I will admit, 18 years after Steve and I started the development of this project, that I am so honored to be a part of James Madison Preparatory School. One of the best things about teaching is that every day, every class, and every student is different. I enthusiastically enjoy surprises, and there are so many great surprises, in and out of the classroom, EVERY SINGLE DAY!
The courses I teach at Madison Prep are World History, World Religions, Music Appreciation, and American Government. Fortunate for the many opportunities outside the classroom at JMPS, I am the choir and Drumline director, head coach for Track and Field, choral/vocal/acting coach and tech director for the JMPS theater program, as well as a few other hats that I wear.
I am the proud father of three (2 daughters, 1 son). Outside of school I enjoy playing and listening to music (I'm always in a few music projects, including my classic rock band The Blind Owlz), walking my dogs, hiking, camping, travel, reading, writing, shooting, and table tennis.
