Welcome to Mr. Wange's Class!
A little bit about me...
My name is Jay Wange and I am entering my 25th year of education. 3rd year in Adrian. I will be teaching Algebra 2 and 8th Grade Math, as well as handling the Activities Director's responsibilities.
I am originally from Luverne, MN where I graduated High School in 1988.
We currently live in Sioux Falls.
My family consists of my wife Andrea, and two children. My wife teaches at USD in the education field; handling student teachers and their placements.
Our daughter Mackenzie was born in 2001 and is entering 10th grade at Washington School, and she enjoys being on her dance teams and their competitions.
Our son Teegan was born in 2004 and is entering 7th grade at Patrick Henry Middle School. He enjoys being on the computer and his I-pad.
We have two dogs, Madie - a springer Spaniel; and Addie - our son's black lab special needs dog.
During my teaching time, I have coached different levels of basketball, football, baseball, golf, and wrestling; and I enjoy others like bowling and tennis as well.
During my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids. When they are busy doing other things - you can find me down in my "man-cave" sorting/organizing sports cards and listening to tunes from the 80's.
My favorite meal is Hamburger Helper's Beef Stroganoff.
My favorite movie is Jaws.
My favorite color is Blue.
My favorite song is "The Reflex" by Duran Duran
My favorite pro team - - Vikings/Twins (tie)
I attended/graduated college with my B.A. degree from Concordia College-Moorhead in 1992.
I obtained my Masters Degree in Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction from Walden University, Minneapolis, MN in 2006.
I am absolutely thrilled to be part of Dragon-nation and truly enjoy working with Adrian's young people and current staff. Thank you
