About Me

Hello, Mr Rude here.   I am one of two PVSD school social workers.  My office is in the Counseling Center, yet I also serve the whole district.  In my free time I enjoy being in the great outdoors in winter as well as in summer.  I like to ski, snowshoe, hike, and backpack.  Fun fact about me, I have visited 48 states in the USA.  Can you guess which states I have not visited yet?  Ask me about a state and I can tell you something from personal experience.
