About Me

I teach sixth grade math and fifth/sixth grade language arts. I also teach an extra math class during Lancer Time. After school, I have a sixth grade math masters team and a lego league team.

I have taught in La Crescent since 2009. I moved to La Crescent from Rochester, MN, where I was a software engineer at IBM for ten years. Before that, I taught middle school and high school language arts and social studies in Alaska. I grew up in McLean, Virginia.

I received my B.A. in English and geology from Oberlin College. I received my secondary teaching certificate in the Teach for Alaska program at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, where I also studied computer science. I received my Masters in Education at St. Mary’s University in Winona.

I live with my wife, Susan Oddsen, and my daughter Maya who is in seventh grade. My son Ansel is a sophomore at Macalester College in St. Paul.
