About John

John grew up on a farm outside of Gibbon, Minnesota where he attended the local Lutheran grade school (Prairie Lutheran School) and area Lutheran high school (Minnesota Valley Lutheran). He continued his education at Martin Luther College, graduating in 2022 with a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Coaching. After marrying Brianna and spending a year in Duluth where he was a substitute teacher, he was assigned to St. Mark to teach grades 7 and 8 as well as be a participant in the Principal Training Program. John enjoys reading, building, and expanding his knowledge of the Star Wars universe.

"I love teaching in the upper grades. I enjoy the challenge of making learning fun for my students as they are looking forward and preparing for high school. It's rewarding to help them use their God-given talents to do things to the best of their ability, whether that be in the classroom or during an extracurricular event. Most importantly, I enjoy seeing my students grow in their faith and knowledge of God’s Word as they prepare to take on the added responsibilities and challenges ahead of them."
