Mr. Strukel's Biography:


I started teaching social studies in Blue Earth in the fall of 2015.  Prior to coming to Blue Earth, I taught social studies in the Fairmont Area Schools school district for 18 years (starting in 1997) and in the Mora Public Schools for one semester (spring of 1997).

I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Science with a minor in Secondary Education from the St. John's University/College of St. Benedict in the winter of 1996.  I earned a Masters degree from the College of St. Katherine in Curriculum and Instruction in the spring of 2008.

When I'm not at school I enjoy hunting, fishing, woodworking/carpentry, reading, biking, and weightlifting.
