About Mr. Dunn
Hello!  I am entering my 4th year of teaching and 2nd year BACK at Mohawk High School.  I was fortunate enough to graduate from MHS in 2007 before heading to Mount Union University for college.  I played football while attending Mount until injuring myself and decided to transfer back to Heidelberg University.  While at Heidelberg I majored in History while playing football for 3 years and basketball for 1 year.  I graduated from Heidelberg with a bachelor's degree in History in 2012.  After graduation I decided to enter the workforce, I began work, the day after graduation at Webster Industries and I worked there for 15 months until August of 2013.  In the fall of 2013 I decided to head back to school to obtain my education degree from the University of Findlay, I completed that degree in the Summer of 2014.  Following my graduation I was offered my first teaching job at Arcadia High School where I taught 7-12 Social Studies while also coaching basketball my first year.  In my second year at AHS I took on the roll of Athletic Director and Head Basketball Coach.  Throughout my coaching career I have coached football at Heidelberg and Columbian High School, basketball at Old Fort and Arcadia and I coached baseball at Mohawk for 2 years.  
 
I currently live east of Tiffin in my grandfathers old house and I am busy fixing it up any chance I get.  I love golfing and going to sporting events, I sadly also am a Browns season ticket holder so any wishful thoughts on Sunday afternoons for them are greatly appreciated!   
 
I am excited to be back at a place like Mohawk that I love so much and I am excited to be able to work with the students and staff this school year!
