Photo Robert HansonHola! I grew up in Roseville, MN and went on to do my undergraduate work at Gustavus Adolphus College. After a short break mid career at GAC, 80s ROCK BAND, I studied at the University of Saint Louis in Madrid, Spain. Upon returning, I was committed to earn a double major in Spanish and Speech Comm. with an emphasis on International Public Relations. Degree in hand and an opportunity awaiting in Spain, other circumstances arose and I decided to earn a Masters Degree in Spanish at Mankato State University. Along the way, I decided to earn an Educ. degree as well.

I began my education career as a TA at Mankato, proceeded to running the TA program my last year there and also becoming adjunct faculty at the University of Mn- Waseca, where I created a program teaching Spanish to farmers and future farmers who wanted to communicate better with the migrant workers. Upon the closing of the school, I needed to find a job and I began teaching half time at South St. Paul High School and half time at Henry Sibley. The year was 1992. I have been at Sibley ever since.

I currently teach Spanish IV, V, and V CE (fourth semester college credit through Minnesota State University in Mankato).

At Sibley, I am the creator and director of ALMAS (Anglos Latinos Motivados A Superarse) and also do announcing for the Sibley soccer and basketball teams.
