Meet the New Guy

I thought I'd take the opportunity to introduce myself to the Elkton staff, since as the Technology Director I will be working with all of you.  Some of you I already know well because we're related, and a few of you may remember me from my Student Teaching days, which I did here in Elkton.

A bit of my professional background, I have taught for 16 years, the last 8 being in Chamberlain.  I started out as a Social Studies teacher, then gradually moved my way into Physical Education.  This May I graduated from Dakota State University with a Master of Science in Educational Technology (MSET).

On the family side of things, my wife Shana and I have four children.  Taylor is 16 and will be a Junior, Cameron is 14 and will be a Freshman, Marcus is 9 and will be in 4th grade, and Miles is 8 and will be a 3rd grader.  My parents Robert and Rita, are originally from this area and my father is actually an EHS graduate. They currently live in Aurora.

We are currently looking for housing in Elkton, and hopefully we can get something lined up, and soon (school starts in just over a month!).

I will be here each week until we get completely moved, but I'm going to be running back and forth between here and the River City trying to prepare for our change in location.  If you stop by the school for anything, don't hesitate to stop to see me and introduce yourself.

This is me talking to some dude at State CC a few years ago.

I'm very excited to meet and work with each of you.  This is a new position for me, and I'm sure I will have a great deal of learning to do.


  1. I have met you and I do rely on techs a ton as there isn't much we could do in Language arts without you people. Thanks and have a great year. Mike Marshall

  2. I have an "in" with the Priciple. (I am her mom) Welcome!!
