LEFT to RIGHT: Mr. Kroll, Mrs. Kroll, and Mrs. Ferguson


I am no stranger to public education; I have been working in a public high school for the past nineteen years in a variety of capacities. I have been a faculty member at L'Anse Creuse High School-North for the past ten years. Prior to my arrival in Macomb Township, I worked for South Lyon Community Schools in a variety of capacities. A two-time honors graduate of Eastern Michigan University, I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary English Education and a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership (K-12 School Administration). A firm believer in life-long learning, I recently finished a pandemic-inspired new Master's degree program in Learning, Design, and Technology through Central Michigan University this summer.

I was born and raised on the "west" side of Metro Detroit in South Lyon, Michigan. Now, I live in West Bloomfield Township with my wife Dr. Charlotte Painter Kroll, a family dentist, and our two dogs, Lucy & Penny.

In addition to teaching, I am the Executive Director for the Michigan Council of Teachers of English (a statewide non-profit organization that provides professional development opportunities for English teachers across the state), and I am also a certified Teacher Consultant for the National Writing Project. In my spare time, I also serves as the pastoral presence for a small rural Lutheran church in northern Macomb County.

Some of my interests include: summers on West Grand Traverse Bay, learning, reading, writing, traveling, shopping, spending time with family and friends, attending Broadway musicals, listening to music, and helping out in the community.
