Ian Noble is an Educational Assistant at Avalon. Currently enrolled in the Master of Arts in Education program at Augsburg College, Ian will soon be licensed to teach Language Arts. While we wait for the impending onset of Ian’s scheme to rewrite the book on Education, he’s incredibly blessed to be teaching and learning at Avalon. Originally Tennessean (specifically Memphibian), Ian moved to the Twin Cities to sail on the H.M.S. Diversity and to enjoy 12 months of warm weather and sunshine, direct and to-the-point confrontations, tater tots as finger food only, Minnesota Mean, the lack of Oxford commas, and short vowel sounds; all things that are found in abundance here. He also hates sarcasm.
