Hi there! My name is Alex Reichenbach and I am the new Health & Physical Education teacher at Glenville-Emmons. I am very excited to join the Wolverine community and look forward to contributing in a variety of ways, not just as a teacher, but as a fan, coach, and official.
A little about me: I am from Arlington, Minnesota, and graduated as a Sibley East Wolverine (sweet mascot, right?). In high school, I was a 3-sport athlete, playing baseball, basketball, and football. In addition to my time spent in athletics, I was a member of DECA Quiz Bowl and Knowledge Bowl teams that finished 1st and 3rd in the state tournament.
Currently, I spend my summers working as an Area Director for Skyhawks Sports Academy, a company that runs sports camps in the Twin Cities for kids aged 4-14 who want to try sports like soccer, basketball, flag football, lacrosse, volleyball, baseball, and golf for the first time, without making a huge investment in buying equipment. It's a very rewarding position and allows me to continue to my passion of working with kids over break!
I will also be entering into my 3rd season as the manager of my hometown Arlington A's, the 5-time Minnesota amateur baseball State Champs! Baseball is something of an obsession in Arlington, which is the only town in the entire state of Minnesota with a water tower painted like a baseball!
I hope that answers some of the basic questions you may have about me, but feel free to contact me if you are ever curious to know more. My staff email is the best way to reach me. Have a nice day!
