I am originally from Iron River, Michigan. I moved to the St. Paul area after graduating from Northern Michigan University with a degree in computer networking.  I later earned my teaching license in language and communication arts
and a master's degree from the college of St. Scholastica. In my younger years, I worked as a camp counselor for six years at the Iron County Youth Camp in Iron River, Michigan, and spent my formative years enjoying the outdoors. My free time is spent rooting for the Minnesota United Loons, Saint Paul Saints, and any other sporting event my kids will let me drag them to. I look forward to getting to know you and your student(s).  Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or interest in learning more about our activities in the classroom.  I can be contacted by phone at 651-403-7707, or by e-mail at patrick.hibbard@isd197.org.
