About Mr. Dave Gottwalt
My name is Dave Gottwalt; I am blessed to be the 5th grade teacher at Saint Rose of Lima Catholic School. I bring 24 years of teaching experience to this position, and I have a deep love for Christ and our Catholic faith. I taught for 17 years in the St. Paul Public School District and gained much knowledge and experience of how to teach students of various backgrounds and needs. I am excited to be here and to share my love for learning and for my faith. I graduated from the Archdiocesan Catechetical Institute in May, and I enjoy singing in my church choir at Transfiguration in Oakdale. When I'm not teaching, I really enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities; especially camping, biking, and softball. I also enjoy singing with my family and keeping up with Minnesota sports teams.
