I am married to a wonderful woman, Marianne. We have two beautiful boys, Quinn & Jude. My family loves to camp, hike, and ride our bicycles. This is my 13th year as a teaching professional, 3 years in First Grade, 3 years in Kindergarten, and will begin a seventh year in Third Grade. My purpose in life is to be the best father, husband, and teacher I can be. I place a special emphasis on being a positive role model for my students here at Kruse.
