Mora Public Schools
Exploring, Engaging, Empowering
I am honored and excited to serve as the superintendent of the Mora School District. Allow me to introduce myself and offer you some background information.
I grew up and graduated high school in Princeton, Minnesota. After graduating high school, I attended Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN where I earned my Bachelors of Arts degree in history and social studies education. I was a teacher and coach in Rush City for a year before accepting a position in Pine City teaching social studies and coaching varsity hockey and golf. I stayed in Pine City for 17 years before moving back to Princeton where I was an Assistant Principal and Principal for the past 12 years. The 2021-22 school year will be my 31st year in education. I have found the profession that I love and therefore have never worked a day in my life. I enjoy being around students and educators who enjoy working with students and each other.
My wife Kris and I have been married for for 30 years, and we have two grown children. My two sons are Daniel, 25, and Lucas, 21, and they both are in the biomedical engineering field. My hobbies include spending time with family, traveling, fishing, biking, golfing, sports, reading, hiking, running, coaching, and community service.
I am both proud and fortunate to be working now in the Mora School District with a dedicated and talented team of educators and support staff. I am extremely impressed with the commitment and dedication of the Mora Schools staff and the community and look forward to meeting all of the parents and community members that make Mora a very special place to live and work.
