Welcome! My name is Mr. Kaplan and I am one of the Sixth Grade Language Arts Teachers at Triton Middle School.
I am from Owatonna, MN and graduated from OHS. I attended Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree. 

2018-2019 is my second year at TMS. This is my 8th year teaching. My first 3 years of teaching were spent in a small Alaskan village teaching 6-12 grade Mathematics, Language Arts, and Physical Education. I spent 1 year in Heron Lake-Okabena, MN teaching 6-8 Math and then 2 years in Fairmont, MN teaching 4th Grade. 

My spare time is spent with my family. My wife Ashley is a literacy coach at Faribault Public Schools. I have a son Liam who is 3 and daughter Addison who is 2. We enjoy going to parks and playing soccer together. 

Teaching Purpose:

I teach because I want to provide a safe and stable learning learning environment for all students to develop and grow as a learner and as a human being. I try and instill life long learning strategies that will help students become great people as they move further in life.
