Mr. Neil Doose Middle School Math
 

 

 

MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH 

My name is Neil Doose.  I earned my teaching degree at St. Cloud State University and have an elementary teaching license, a middle school math teaching certificate, and also earned a coaching minor.  I have coached jr. high football for 18 years, basketball for 28 years, and boys golf for 10 years.  I also coached baseball for 15 years. 

My wife Michelle and I have 2 children.  Carter (age 15) and Madison (age 13).  My hobbies include camping, fishing, hunting, golf, softball, baseball and doing yard work.   

My duties at school are to help all middle school students achieve at their highest potential so they can be successful as members of our society.  My classrooms are very structured as I believe that students learn the best under ideal learning environments.  I enjoy helping and watching students learn and developing new skills.
