Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am very excited to begin my sixth year here at St. Charles High School. This year I will once again be teaching seventh grade language arts, as well as a philosophy and literature class for juniors and seniors. I am also the head coach of the St. Charles boys track and field team in the spring. 

For incoming 7th graders, or for any high schoolers who don't know me yet, here are some key Mr. Klein facts:
  • Unsurprisingly, I read a lot, and will encourage you to do the same.
  • The Minnesota Twins are America's baseball team (and wearing a Yankee cap to my classroom is a risky move...).
  • I will, no matter who you are, suggest that you go out for track. I will continue to politely suggest this until you a) go out for track, or b) graduate from St. Charles High School. It's entirely possible I may continue to recruit you after graduation, just out of habit.

If you have ANY questions at all regarding classes, athletics, or anything else, please do not hesitate to email me at or give me a call at 507-932-4420.
