Welcome to another year at GHEC!

My name is Alex Roorda and I am the High School Mathematics teacher here at Granada-Huntley East Chain School.  This is my fourth year at GHEC, but it is my 9th year of teaching overall.  I graduated from North Dakota State University (GO BISON!) with a degree in Mathematics Education and St. Mary's University of Minnesota with a Master's of Arts in Education degree.   I've taught everything from 7th grade Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus over my career and I strive to bring a fun, enjoyable, and challenging environment to math class, no matter the grade or level.  I also coach football for GHEC-Truman Jaguars and serve on various groups throughout the school.

My wife, Katie, and I have two little boys, Brock is in second grade and Bentley is in Little Jags 3 year old Preschool.  We live on Katie's family farm outside of East Chain that has been in her family for close to 100 years.

I look forward to another fantastic year!  Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions at or by calling the school at 507-447-2211.  Students, parents and community members can also follow me on Twitter @mrroorda or by signing up for Remind101.
