About Luke

I am a 3rd grade teacher, my wife teaches 5th grade. I have switched careers from the business world to be an elementary teacher. I absolutely love working with kids and seeing them succeed. I am a life long learner who has had struggles but have found my love of school and learning. I want to share this passion with my students.

Math is my favorite subject and love to talk math. I also like solving problems in many different ways and not only find the answer but be able to explain the why and how as well. I also like to learn from my students and see their thinking, very hands on in math.

I really enjoy reading and have learned many ways to help struggling readers by using different interventions. I also enjoy digging deeper into books and having book talks. Applying all the comprehension strategies.

Studying was something I figured out and really succeeded at in college. I know many ways to study and can help in strategies to be successful for all learners.

I have played football and basketball in college at the Division III level. I have also coached basketball and football along with being a referee. I am a certified coach in the state of Iowa.

I am very passionate about learning and helping students be successful. Not just to get through the school year, but to set up students with skills that will last a lifetime.
