About Mr. Kongshaug

My name is James Kongshaug, and this will be my ninth year teaching and sixth year with New Prague Area Schools. Prior to coming to NPAS, I taught for three years at another district in southern Minnesota. I also have some teaching experience teaching abroad in Latvia and Poland at different English language camps for students aged 8-18.

A little bit about me: I am originally from western Wisconsin (proud Packer fan!). For my undergraduate degree, I attended Winona State University. In December of 2017, I graduated with my master's degree through St. Scholastica. While not at school I enjoy many hobbies and interests when I have some free time. Watching sports (baseball - Twins, football - Packers & Gophers, and soccer - Minnesota United & Arsenal), running, traveling to new places, and learning about history are just a few hobbies. My wife and I have a Beagle/Jack Russell (Jack-A-Bee) mix named Lola who keeps us very busy and active with long walks and playing fetch with her many toys. 

I am very excited to be part of a great 3rd Grade team at Eagle View. I look forward to working with all of the 3rd grade students this year. Together we will make the 2018-2019 school year a great one! If you ever need to chat, please contact me at the number or email listed in the contact information link.
