Family
My wife and I live in Kasson with our 2 year old daughter Marlee and are very proud to be members of the KoMet community.  My wife Jessica is a kindergarten teacher at Triton.  When we are not in our classrooms, we spend the majority of our time playing and learning with Marlee.  I grew up on a farm North of Mantorville with my family and still spend many hours after school and weekends helping in the field and working with the beef cattle on the family farm.
