Getting to Know ...


This man and Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) could almost be considered synonyms. He’s been part of our community for generations.

He’s the son of a former SPPS teacher. He’s a graduate of Prosperity Heights Elementary and Johnson Senior High School. For 38 years, he taught physical education. The majority of those years were at his former elementary school. At Harding Senior High School he coaches baseball and hockey. Today, he’s a Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) and working to better our physical education programs.
