RHS Teacher Named KS95 Teacher of the Week

One of our own RHS teachers was named KS95's Teacher of the Week! Alec Kalbow, one of our Spec. Ed/DCD teachers, was nominated for this special honor by a coworker who has noticed his positive contributions to the school. You can watch his interview with KS95 below!

A little bit about Alec:

"My name is Alec Kalbow and I am a center-based DCD teacher. This is my 2nd year at RHS and my 3rd in the district. My path to becoming a teacher is a unique one. Going into my senior year of high school, I was set on pursuing engineering in college and as a career. Unfortunately, I tore my ACL in a football game early in the season and was forced to drop all my gym classes I was registered for. One of my football coaches encouraged me to be a TA in his center-based DCD class, and I quickly discovered that I loved working with people with disabilities. I made the decision to switch my degree to special education and the rest is history! I would encourage high school students to try out as many different potential careers as possible and to keep your mind open, you never know what you will enjoy!
 
I grew up in Blaine, Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities where I received my B.S. in Special Education and my M.Ed. in Special Education. While completing my undergraduate degree, I student taught at Richfield high school and was immediately impressed with the school community. I have had nothing but positive experiences working with Richfield students, staff, and families. It is truly a great place to be! My favorite part of being a teacher is getting to know the students and figuring out what they need to do their best learning. 
 
Outside of school, I really enjoy being outdoors, binging Netflix, and cheering for Minnesota sports teams!"
