Mr. Kroll, Dr. Kroll, and Mrs. Ferguson (Mr. Kroll's student teaching mentor from 2009)


I am no stranger to public education; I have been working in a public high school for the past twenty-one years in a variety of capacities.  I have been a faculty member at L'Anse Creuse High School-North for the past thirteen 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 completed a pandemic-inspired Master's degree program in Learning, Design, and Technology through Central Michigan University in the summer of 2021.

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 in Milford, 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 ProjectIn 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.
