Mr. Pines

Hello Fountain Fort Carson District 8!

Let me take a moment to introduce myself. First off, it is difficult to describe who I am because I am a people person who would rather meet you face to face. However, let me give this a go. I am a 5th grade teacher with a passion for learning. I was born and raised in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. I went to college at the University of Minnesota Duluth where I received a degree in K-6 Elementary Education and K-12 Special Education. I spent my first two years of my career teaching middle school special education in Minnesota. Since moving to Colorado in the summer of 2019, I feel as though I am living my best life. I am honored to be at Jordahl Elementary School. I take pride in my teaching. My goal is for your child to foster a love for life-long learning. Outside of school, I love to run, hike, climb, snowboard, and adventure to new places. 

Here's to an amazing school year!
