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 watching the Green Bay Packers, playing racquetball, walking through our neighborhood, and relaxing with my family.  My wife and I enjoy spending time with our sons, Henry and William.  It has been a joy to watch them grow, and we're hoping they'll make a few surprise appearances in the classroom this year.  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.
