Mr. Laarman graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology Secondary Education. Mr. Laarman has previously taught in Salt Lake City, UT and Kansas City, MO at both Middle and High School levels teaching a variety of subjects including Digital Media, Intro to Engineering, and Electronics. He has a passion for opening up opportunities for students to explore the greater world around them.
At previous schools where Mr. Laarman founded robotics programs, several teams reached the world stage and competed with the best students from around the globe. After school hours, you may see him riding his bike around town while pulling his two adorable kids in their “chariot”. If you don’t see him riding his bike, he’s probably tinkering with a project at home.
Mr. Laarman is thrilled about joining WMAA to help generate excitement about learning and to become better together.
