Keith comes to Creede with 25 years of educational experience in multiple levels from high school history to general studies in second grade. Keith has also taught middle school language arts, physical education, third and fourth grade elementary classes and was a Gifted and Talented Coordinator for the past several years. He received his Bachelor’s degree in 1992 and his Master’s degree in Elementary Education in 1994 from the University of Wisconsin-Lacrosse. Additionally, Keith attended Viterbo University, where he obtained his administration licensure. Keith has a strong educational philosophy that states that we are not just teaching children to be good academic students, but that we are also teaching them to be caring, responsible citizens.
Personally, Keith enjoys the outdoor pursuits of camping, fishing, hunting and all-around outdoor adventure. He has two sons, Jared and Hunter, and a wife, Michele. When not engaged in one of the above activities, Keith enjoys a variety of do-it-yourself challenges, from making his own fishing lures to building his own off-the-grid hunting cabin.
Keith has already met many awesome neighbors and friendly community members that have made him and his wife feel so welcome and looks forward to contributing to the outstanding Creede community.
