I was raised on a dairy farm in Chaseburg, WI, which is where I got my love of John Deere!!I have five brothers and three sisters.I graduated from Dr. Martin Luther College, in New Ulm, MN, where I met my wife, Mari. We married in 1977. The Lord has blessed us with six children, who have continued to bless us with 15 grandchildren! I enjoy building things, helping people with projects, and snowmobiling. Mari and I love to travel. Our goal is to someday be able to see all 50 states!
Through God's generous mercy, I have had the good fortune to have taught at Emanuel since 1978. I have taught a variety of grades and subjects. It is a wonderful challenge, especially teaching the second generation students, which I am now experiencing.
Emanuel really does have some really wonderful parents!
I love children and have enjoyed my time at Emanuel. I look forward to any new adventure the Lord brings to me. God is good!
