What attracted you to apply at MP Schools?: Having previously worked at Mineral Point Elementary as an instructional assistant for two years and having loved the school, staff, and all the students. Teaching in the same district as my wife and kids was and is what attracted me the most to the district. Being able to teach in the area I have always had a lot of interest and passion for was the other reason I was attracted to Mineral Point.
Quotable: “I have a passion for fitness and making healthy choices and am excited to be teaching in the district my family attends. My background in special education and being Crisis Prevention Institute trained will fit in well for instructional support in the school’s Response to Intervention system.”
