A little about me...
This will be my 3rd year as principal of Gage Elementary School. I am starting my 15th year in the Rochester Public Schools. Prior to Gage, I spent four years as the assistant principal at Franklin/Montessori at Franklin Elementary School. Before coming to Franklin, I taught 5th grade at Pinewood Elementary for six years and worked in the Office of Curriculum and Instruction for two years.
I love sports! I am a BIG Vikings fan. I love to golf and fish. We spend time during the summer at the family cabin near Park Rapids. I have coached youth football, basketball and baseball in Rochester as well. My wife, Janelle, is also a teacher. She teaches 7th and 8th grade English and Communication at Byron Middle School. We had our first child in September 2014 and Theodore keeps us very busy outside of school!
