Author Talk Curt Klaahsen May 3, 2018

Curt Klaahsen and his wife Margo still live in Mason City, and in the fall of 2017, he will enter his 30th year of teaching and coaching.  He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Morningside College and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Drake University.  Coach Klaahsen has taught social studies, language arts, and physical education to grades 6-12 throughout his teaching career and has coached the sports of basketball, baseball, volleyball, football, track and field, and soccer.

In his words-
"The book highlights the events of my life through my lens and especially highlights the people and lessons I’ve learned in over 50 years of life and 30 years in education-from George to Sioux City, Newell-Fonda, Atlantic, Cherokee, and now Mason City.  It ends after the 2015-16 school year and the state championship.  I chose not to name specific players or students in the book but did name the adults.  Don’t worry-the book is positive and is more self reflective of what I should have done differently than anything else!  What a journey it has been!"

"Aimed towards both kids and adults, When Life Meets Coaching will give you insight into the life of a high school coach and show in detail how everyone we meet and every event we experience influences us in some way. When Life Meets Coaching will make you laugh, make you cry, and most importantly, make you appreciate the people you have met in life and the lessons you have learned along the way."
