My name is Joe Pettinger and I am beginning my second year at Northwest. This year I am lucky enough to be co-teaching with Mrs. Nordholt!
I grew up in Apple Valley, Minnesota, and went to Benilde-St. Margaret’s High School near Minneapolis. While in high school I played football and lacrosse, and volunteered with children who played power soccer. After high school I attended Marquette University. During my four years I worked as a student-manager for the men’s basketball team (for two years), and as a teacher assistant for Marquette’s Educational Opportunity Program. Outside of Marquette, I coach basketball and officiate lacrosse. I currently live in Chicago, and spend my spare time with my roommates.
