Andrew has been a Friends School of Minnesota third and fourth grade teacher since 2012. He graduated from Grinnell College with a B.A. in Sociology and a certificate in Elementary Education.

Andrew spent seventeen years teaching at Abington Friends School in suburban Philadelphia. 

 He is the parent of two young boys and an avid ultimate Frisbee player.

"When I moved from Philadelphia I was worried that I would not be able to teach at another school where I could attend to the voices and needs of the students and be led by intellectual interests instead of focusing on standardized testing and inflexible curricula.  I knew about Friends School of Minnesota through a variety of Friends school interactions and attended a conflict resolution training here in 2001 and I’m so glad to be a part of this amazing faculty."
