Education is a career change for Chuck. His first degree was a Bachelor of Arts degree from Augsburg College, and his second degree, which he obtained 8 years later, is a Bachelor of Science degree for Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota. In between these two degrees, he worked as a grain merchandiser for an international export company. After working in the grain business, he spent three years with the Peace Corps as a youth sports director in Malawi, Africa. He strongly believes that his unique background has provided him with wonderful experiences to share with his classroom.
For the past twelve years he have been coaching Girls Basketball at the High School. He coaches the Junior Varsity, and it is really fun for him to go from working with elementary children during the day, and then going to coach high school kids. He feels very fortunate to be part of three State Championships!!
