Welcome back to another year at Mt. Olive Lutheran School. I’m very excited to
meet all of you! My family and I feel very blessed to serve you.
Here is a little bit of information to help you get to know me: I grew up in Westminster, CO where I attended Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran, a school just like Mt. Olive. After grade school, I attended Nebraska Lutheran High School. I was blessed at NELHS with Christian friends and teachers. I decided to continue my Christian education by attending Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. I met my wife Katie there. I graduated in 2006 with my degree in Elementary Education.
Upon graduation, I was assigned to teach 4th and 5th grade at Mt. Calvary in beautiful Redding, CA. In the winter of my first year Katie and I were married. We were blessed with three kids. Sophia is turning 7 and will be in 1st grade with Mrs. Krause’s class. Ella is turning 5 and will be in Mrs. Rundgren’s class. Levi is 2 years old and will be happy to stay home with mom and have playdates with other little boys.
I taught for 10 years at Mount Calvary. After the first two years we added on grades 6th-8th and I moved up with the students. For the majority of my years there, I served as the 5th-8th grade teacher and principal.
I love soccer, golf and almost every other sport. I love to participate in almost anything outdoors like hunting, hiking, camping and fishing. I really enjoy grilling for my family.
Mr. Dan Douglas will begin his work at Mt. Olive as Principal and 5-8 Grade teacher in July, 2016.
