All About Mr. D!
Mr. D and Family
Mr. D, Chrissy (Wife) and Isabel (Daughter)

My teaching career in Minneapolis Public Schools began right here at Hale in 2009. After an eight year hiatus, I am thrilled to be rejoining the fourth grade team this year!

Education has played an integral role in my life. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Sociology from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. Additionally, I hold a Masters of Education degree and a Reading Certificate from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.

I live in Minneapolis with my wife Chrissy and my daughter Isabel. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, traveling and the outdoors. I also spend my summers working at Target Field and watching Twins baseball.

Fourth grade is a year full of learning. My goal each year is to assist your child in developing their social, emotional and academic skills.  I anticipate a fantastic year of learning and I look forward to working with your family throughout the school year!
