Introduction: I have lived in Southeast Nebraska all of my life growing up in the small town of Byron in Thayer County and graduating from nearby Fairbury. Therefore the Southern School District has been a great fit. I actually come from a family of teachers with my grandpa being an ag teacher/FFA sponsor in Northeast Kansas and two of my aunts teaching in Nebraska and Missouri respectively. My wife is also a 2nd-grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary in Beatrice. I currently serve as a 7-12 Social Studies teacher at Southern with extracurricular duties including Co-Head Track & Field, Assistant Boy’s Basketball, & Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsor. Contact Information: mringen@southernschools.org Education: Undergraduate and Graduate at Peru State College with Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Social Studies & Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology Experience: Entering my 14th year teaching at Southern Public Schools. I began teaching my first year out of Peru State College during the 2004-2005 school year. Family/Hobbies: My family includes my wife Tara and my 3 daughters Nevaeh, Eden, & Willa. Tara and I have been married for 11 years and have lived in Beatrice ever since. In my free time, I still enjoy playing sports and helping coach my daughters. I’m also an avid fan of Midwest college & professional teams including the Chiefs, Royals, & Huskers football. Good health has also allowed me to continue running and working out in my spare time. Recently our family purchased a new home in Beatrice (100+ year old beautiful house) that we will be moving into soon. Our family looks forward to this new adventure in our lives.
