Meet Our Instructors

Alan Freudigmann

I am originally from Australia and have lived in the U.S. since 2002 and have been married to my wonderful wife Megan since 2002. We have 4 kids (Kirra-16, Eliana-13, Quinn-11, Niyah-8) who love to travel, play sports (especially soccer, track, skiing and volleyball), and enjoying the great outdoors.

Professionally, this is my first year at KCTC's Teacher Academy, but prior to being here I was a teacher at East Kentwood (EK) High School for most of the last 15 years teaching students' biology, environmental science, health and physical education. In addition to my time at EK, I have taught at an international private school in Australia for a short stint in 2017-2018 where I worked with students on short-term visas to experience education in Australia. I also have a strong passion for teen leaders and spend a lot of my spare time coaching soccer, and teaching (coaching) at Grand Valley State University for their Education programs where I work with students on academic probation/jeopardy of dismissal to get them back on track with their academics and personal lives.
