My name is Mr. Breckenridge, and I'm thrilled and honored to be teaching 3rd grade at Athlos for the 2021-2022 school year.
Being a teacher and educator is my calling. Having worked in the school setting for 9 years, I recently completed my master's degree in education (teaching) at the University of Minnesota and am ready to fully apply my experience, education, and training to the service of each of my student's growth and learning this year.
I grew up in both Minneapolis and Apple Valley, MN where I played tennis, sang in the school choir, and worked throughout high school as a downhill ski instructor at Buck Hill. After high school, I moved on to Madison, WI, where I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, receiving my my bachelor's degree in English literature in 2004. After graduating, I accepted a teaching position in Paris, France where I taught English at two public elementary schools. Following this, I began working as a paraprofessional at New Visions school in Minneapolis, MN for three years. I have been with Athlos since 2017 in a number of different roles, including assistant music teacher, health teacher, and full-time building substitute.
Outside of school, I enjoy singing, playing guitar, bass, banjo, ukulele, and a bit of piano. I also love downhill skiing in the winter and kayaking in the summer. I live in South Minneapolis with my wife and our lazy little kitty cat, Louise.
I look forward to meeting and working with you towards a successful year of learning!
