About Me

My name is Bret Larson and I am currently in my sixth year of working for Manson Northwest Webster Schools. I currently serve as the Instructional Coach at the elementary school in Barnum. Along with my role at school, I also am the head girls basketball coach and head boys golf coach.

I grew up in Denison, Iowa where I graduated from Denison High School in 2006. After high school, I attended Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa where I received my bachelor's degree in 2010 in elementary education along with endorsements in reading, special education, and coaching. In 2014, I completed my masters' degree from the University of South Dakota in School Administration (PK-12 Principal). 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife's name is Andrea and she also graduated from Northwestern College. She currently works as a nurse practitioner for Iowa Heart Center in Fort Dodge. We have two children, Madilyn(age 4) and Bryce (age 2).  I am an avid sports fan and love the Chicago Cubs and Dallas Cowboys.
