Where do you live?

I lived in Pine River, MN (the Brainerd Lakes Area) for many years until 2014. I now live in Lehi, Utah

Why did you become a teacher?

I always liked math and science and still do. I wanted to share my passion with others so I thought teaching math would be a wonderful way to do that.

BlueSky is ready to delivery a quality education online through innovative use of technology while making it easy for students to engage with caring adults.

Why did you choose BlueSky?

When the opportunity to teach online presented itself I jumped at the chance. My graduate work was done in an online course through Bemidji State and I loved that way of learning. BlueSky is the premier online High School in my opinion.

What do you think makes BlueSky special?

BlueSky has the best curriculum and a staff that really cares about its students. It offers the flexibility that students need and crave.

What do you like to do when you're not teaching?

I love spending time with my family and have 5 adult children. I fish, hunt, go boating, spend time outdoors, work on old boat motors, computers, and other electronics. I take online college classes to keep learning, study astronomy and try to keep up on new theories in science. My family also spends a lot of time working with our church helping others when we can.

If there were one thing you could tell people about BlueSky, what would it be?
