My name is Dan Bjerga and I have been teaching mathematics at Central Lakes College since 1997. Prior to coming to CLC, I taught mathematics and coached at the high school level for five years. I earned my B.A.S in Teaching Mathematics from the University of Minnesota, Duluth and my M.S. in Mathematics from Saint Cloud State University. I really enjoy being in the classroom and interacting with my students. I find it very rewarding to see students succeed at learning algebra through a lot of hard work, determination, and effort! Outside of teaching, I also enjoy raising beef cattle, working outside, long motorcycle trips, and teaching my two sons how to be tough, respectful, and disciplined!
