    Where are you from? I am from Sheldon, Iowa. Tell us about your family. Married to Glenda, who works at the SCS Thrift Store, for 29 years; four children, Trevor (23), Dordt/Ag-Business, agronomist at Bleyhl's; Danika (21), St Luke's Nursing School, R.N. at Sunnyside Community Hospital; Luke (18), senior at SCHS; Cole (12), Grade 7 at SCS. What was your school like growing up? Very similar to SCS, except much larger.  Athletics/academics were very competitive.  The mindset at school was that education was an opportunity and you either took advantage of the opportunity or you did not. Why do you like to teach? I like to learn, I like kids, I feel called by God to lead young people! What do you like to do when you're not teaching? Coaching, working at home, hiking, four-wheeling, learning and honing a Biblical worldview, reading, watching college football and basketball. What is your favorite Bible verse? Many passages but Romans 12 is certainly a favorite. What is your favorite snack? Chocolate variations
