About Mr. Wallace


I am excited to be a member of the Basswood fifth grade team during the 2017-2018 school year.  This is my 9th year at Basswood and my 33rd year of teaching in District 279. I have also taught at Weaver Lake, Sunny Hollow, and Park Brook. I received my Bachelor of Science and Masters in Elementary Education degrees from the University of Minnesota. My wife and I have six children. When I am not coaching or shuttling my children to baseball, softball, basketball, dance, or piano, I enjoy camping, biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, canoeing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and most anything else that takes place outdoors.  I am also the Basswood webmaster.  If you notice any errors or have any suggestions to the web page, please let me know.
