Mr. Topp


I returned to college as a non-traditional student at the age of 25. After graduating from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Mn in 1999 with a degree in History and a license to teach secondary education, I went to work for a suburban district in the Minneapolis area. I really enjoyed this time and coached football, basketball, wrestling and track. My wife and I had the same house and jobs for 14 years.

In 2014 we decided to change things in our lives so that our children--Taylour-22, Patrea-15, Tieryn-13, Jai-10 and Jaelyn-8--could see a different view of the world. I really enjoy teaching at Silver Creek High School and the Big Picture learning platform we are implementing has some enormous potential in terms of engaging our students.
