JAMES KLOS

           I graduated from West Salem High School in 1987, then in May of 1993 from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse with majors in Education and Biology.  I have completed a Masters Degree in Teaching and Education from Saint Mary’s University of Winona, Minnesota in May of 2000. I also earned a Masters Degree in Servant-Leadership along with a Principal licensure at Viterbo University in 2006.

          The last six academic years I have been teaching Advanced Placement Biology, Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Ethics in Science, and Medical Terminology at Black River Falls High School. I was also a class advisor, member of the district safety committee, Response to Intervention instructor and coordinator,  PBIS internal coach, and volunteer wrestling, track, and weightlifting coach.

           Previously I taught Physics, Physical Science, and Principles in Engineering for three years at Marshall Senior High School in Marshall, Wisconsin. Before Marshall, I taught Biology, Ecology, and Anatomy and Physiology for seven years at Unity High School in Balsam Lake, Wisconsin. The knowledge I have gained from being a teacher, a department chair, and a coach of track and wrestling in three districts with it’s students, educators, and administrators has confirmed and solidified my philosophies of education and administration.

          I am honored to be teaching at West Salem High School, and back to being a panther to finish out my teaching career. On West Salem!
