Hello, my name is Mr. Vlasak, and I am so excited to begin teaching 4th grade at St. Dominic! I am from Montgomery, MN and graduated from Montgomery-Lonsdale high school before they became Tri-City United. I recently obtained my teaching license through the teacher preparation program at Minnesota State University, where I also obtained my bachelor’s degree in History, and where I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Teaching.
This is my first foray into Catholic education, but I cannot be more excited. My faith has always been an important part of my life, and I cannot wait to help instill a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Catholic faith to my students. Moreover, I am deeply familiar with the importance of family, and as an educator, I put an emphasis on building and maintaining a relationship with all of my students. This allows for an open and safe environment for students to feel comfortable to develop and grow, and that includes me too, as I fervently believe that education never really ends.
Additionally, I have many different interests and hobbies, including spending time hunting with my bird dog Jonesy, watching football, especially the Vikings, and watching movies with the family, as I am a huge movie buff. I love all kinds of movies, but I love the oldies the most, including John Wayne, Indian Jones, and everything else. Moreover, I am an avid reader, in particular, historical fiction novels by C.S. Forester.
I look forward to meeting the students and families of St. Dominic School!
