Mr. Mack's Classroom
Degrees and Certifications:
I teach high school social studies classes including US History, Geography, Government, Psychology, Sociology, History through Film, and Health.
This is my seventh year as an educator, and I am also the head track & field coach. I always look forward to working with students and athletes alike to achieve their goals!
I graduated from Watertown High School and attended South Dakota State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in History Education. While at SDSU, I also competed for the Jackrabbits on the track & field team in the throws events.
In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor recreation, creating music, hunting, hobby farming, woodworking, and tinkering on various projects. I live outside of Freeman on a small acreage with my wife Katie, my son Harlan, and our two dogs, Ann and Bowie.
