Letter of Introduction from Mr. Klingner 

Dear Parents, Students, and other interested parties:

I would like to introduce myself as middle and high school special education teacher as well as junior high girls’ basketball/track coach and assistant JH football coach. In addition, I also help students with employment opportunities through the vocational rehabilitation program. It is hard to believe as a graduate of Putnam Co R1 Schools that I will already be entering my 11th year of teaching, 9 of those years spent teaching in this district. A little about myself: I grew up in Putnam County then attended the University of Missouri and obtained an agriculture degree, but I decided education is what I really wanted to do.  I enrolled in a teachers' certification program and now have completed my masters/specialists program through William Woods University. I have three kids, Hollister, Cabryn, and Piper.   My wife Michele coaches competition cheerleading and helps on the farm. In my free moments I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching and going to sporting events, and showing cattle. One of the main reasons I enjoy teaching is the interaction with the students and helping them learn and achieve in the classroom and athletics. I believe in today’s increasing technologic environment it’s still important to have the social skills, adaptability, and a strong work ethic to be successful. If you ever have questions for me feel free to get ahold of me. Thanks and looking forward to another year.
