Who's Who in Pender Schools- #13

Number #12 was Tony Crippen, let's here about #13 today!


Well, you don’t want to get sent to this “Who’s Who’s” office especially when you are blaming others for your own problems because that is his biggest pet peeve. You might really be in the doghouse when he has not had his 1 to 2 cups of coffee for that day. This staff member has worked at Pender Public Schools for six years, so I bet he knows all of the tricks.

Now I bet you’re thinking this “Who’s who” is really strict, but when you hear what he does with his family, it will surely turn your mind around. First, he loves spending time with his family and going fishing in Minnesota.  He is always in search of the perfect walleye. Second, he is a Detroit Lions fan and Detroit Lions fans are just nice, so you can just throw that not nice thought out the window. So maybe he will cut you some slack if you’re a Detroit Lions fan.  When this “Who’s Who” is not watching the Detroit Lions he likes to go to Minnesota because of the temperature, landscape, family enjoyment, memories, and most of all, fishing.

He has had many jobs in his life. He has been a paperboy, a maintenance man, a clerk for an auctioneer company, and even an elementary teacher. That's a lot of jobs to have. But if he would have any job in the world he would be a trust fund baby and have no financial burdens or worries.  Wouldn’t that be nice?!?

This PPS staff member went to school in Wakefield, but attended college at Wayne State College. In high school, he was involved in football, track, baseball and was a part of the Big Brother program. His favorite school memory is being undefeated in a school obstacle course on elementary fun day. That must explain why he is so competitive watching the Lions. Good luck guessing this week's ‘Who’s Who!”
