Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Trent Edwards

I am the art teacher at Maple River High School.  I grew up on a farm near a small town of 2200 people. I went to Tracy-Milroy-Balaton High School.  After graduating high school I went to Minnesota State University - Mankato.

In college I started out as a Computer Science Major and found that I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would and then found the Art Educator path and completed that degree.  I did my main art skills focus on Ceramic Pottery/Sculpture and Drawing.  I have tried out many different forms of art and can help with any question related to art.

After living in Mankato for 5 years I missed the small town feeling and moved to Mapleton with my wife. We have lived here for two years and welcomed our first child in June.

  • My hobbies include woodworking, drawing, video games, and learning random things.

    My wife and I travel to different State Parks during the summer and hike the different trails.  My favorite state park nearby is Nerstrand Big Woods State Park.

    We currently have one son named Oaken (1.5).

    I was part of the Minnesota State University - Mankato Handball Club and continue to play in tournaments around the state.
