Mr. John Buck
Hello.  My name is John Buck, and I am new  to the Mahtomedi district in 2018.  I spent the past 33 years teaching math and coaching multiple sports in the  Forest Lake school district.  I served 14 years at Southwest Junior High and 19 years at Forest Lake High School. I retired from full time teaching June 2018. 
I will be teaching the 8th grade course 3 and 7th grade Algebra.
I am married to my lovely wife Allyson of almost 32 years.  We have two married daughters. We are the proud grandparents of two grandsons with another grandchild on the way.
I am excited to be working in Mahtomedi,  and I hope to challenge, inspire, and encourage your children to a great year in Math.
