Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mr. Springsteen's 2nd grade classroom website! Thanks for stopping by! Things about me: I'm from St.Ignace, I graduated from LaSalle High School in 2002 and Central Michigan University in 2007 with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences. I completed the Graduate Teacher Certification program at Grand Valley State University in 2017. This is my 3rd year teaching elementary school and I love it! Prior to teaching, I started a music business where I perform live music playing guitar and singing and I continue to do so in the summers around the Straits Area. I love the connection that music brings to others and I encorporate music into the classroom whenever I can.
My wife, Samantha and I married in 2017 and we both moved back home to St.Ignace in 2018. We also have our dog Sailor, an 8 month old Hungarian Vizsla, he keeps our lives very active! Some of my hobbies are hunting, riding ATV's, hiking, exploring, running, playing basketball and spending time with my friends and family!
Being a teacher is an incredible honor and it takes on many different realities, it's being a gardener, a coach, a juggler, a cat herder, a lifeline, a compass, a captivator, a problem solver, an inventor, a tour guide, a friend, a superhero, a support beam but more than anything, it is about showing up. I'm gratified to be in this profession and enthusiastic about what we can achieve together this year!
