Hello! My name is Kurt Callahan and this year I am going to be teaching in fifth grade. I am originally from the United States, but have lived overseas for most of my life. I earned my Middle Adolescent/Early Childhood Education from St. Norbert College in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This will be my sixth year teaching at SIS, and am very excited to be apart of the fifth grade team this year again. 5A will be a student-driven community, where fairness, respect and responsibility will play a key role in the classroom. I am extremely excited, and cannot wait for our journey of learning to begin!
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy traveling and sports. My favorite sport is basketball, but I also love wakeboarding, snowboarding and biking. I am fortunate enough to have a sweet and energetic three-year-old son, a beautiful 15-month-old daughter, a wonderful wife and two quirky dogs, that keep me busy and happy while at home.
