Mr. Brett Kalmes
Welcome to Engineering Models at Wydown
My name is Brett Kalmes and I am in my 7th year of teaching, 2nd at Wydown. I am originally from St. Louis, MO but lived in Louisville, KY from August 2003 - June 2015. While in Louisville, I played collegiate soccer for Bellarmine University and received and undergraduate degree in Economics and an MBA. I then attended Spalding University and received an MAT with a concentration in Middle School Math and High School Business & Technology. Previously to working at Wydown, I worked at McKinley CLA as a Coding and Robotics teacher. I also ran the schools FLL and FTC robotics programs. While attending McKinley I received my Gifted and Talented Certification from Lindenwood University as well as completed the STEMPact program. This year I will be continuing to support our FTC Robotics team.
I am a very avid sports fan and support the following teams: St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, St. Louis FC, and Missouri Tigers. In my spare time I coach club soccer for SLSG and enjoy the following activities: attending sporting events, traveling, reading, running, scuba diving, racquetball, soccer, basketball, and cooking. My wife Tzivia welcomed our first child Elliot this past December.
