Degrees and Certifications:

Tarryl Bockelman

I’m the middle child with four siblings, born in 1957. I grew up on a small farm near Lincoln NE. I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and married my wife Ann in 1980.  We moved to California where I received my master’s degree.  We had four children and I worked as a firefighter until an injury forced a career redirection.  We moved back to the Midwest in 1991 where I received my teaching certification at Iowa. I started my teaching career at South East Jr. High in 1994. I like sports, motorcycles and just about anything that involves being outdoors.
