About

If you’ve come to this page, it’s most likely that we already know each other. But, can you ever really know another person? Sure, we provide the best version of ourselves in our painfully guarded interactions, but what complexities lie below the facade? What secrets do we harbor?

Well, internet stranger, I’m not going to tell you. Instead, I’ll give you the highlights. I am an aspiring writer, having earned an MFA from¬†Hamline University’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing for Children program (or MFAC, for short, as shortening things is the device of the current age, is it not?)¬†It’s a great and wonderful place, full of great and wonderful people.

I’m also a middle school Math teacher (or, maths, for you British people.) I have opinions about teaching. Mostly, they are angry opinions. I love teaching, but I do not care for politicians or education reformers. Despite knowing absolutely nothing about education, they do their best to undermine teaching and learning. What will improve our education system? Hint: It’s not more testing.

Most proudly, I am a husband and father to three (THREE!) daughters. They are awesome.

All of the views expressed on this website are my own. I don’t think any of the views are particularly crazy, but one can never be too careful.
