About Jim 

I have lived in the school district with my wife Linda for 26 years. I have three children who have been enrolled in the school district. Alayne graduated from high school in 2012, Nathan graduated in 2015, and Claire graduated in 2017.

Before entering kindergarten, my kids, Linda, and I participated in preschool and community education classes including ECFE and Creative Play.

My education after high school is in math and science.  I have a B.A.  in Integrated Science from Northwestern University.  I attended graduate school at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and studied in the Physics and Scientific Instrumentation programs.  I worked as an engineer in various capacities for most of my career.  While working as an engineer I achieved my M.S. in Mathematics from Emporia State University.

I then transitioned careers and I now enjoy being a mathematics instructor at Normandale Community College.
