You may know him as the special education teacher for our Middle Academy in Minneapolis, but Mr. Pokel is a man of many talents! Before he came to teach at Prodeo, Mr. Pokel sold coloring books and greeting cards. He is also passionate about writing and producing music and will be teaching an after school music class this spring. When he was a kid, his favorite book was Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engel. Mr. Pokel's favorite thing about Prodeo? The connections between staff and families!
