Welcome to my site!


My name is Rick Uttech and I am the elementary physical education teacher in the afternoon at Granada. I also teach for the Southern Plains Educational Coop at the Winnebago site in the morning. I coach girls basketball for Granada Huntley East Chain Truman as well as track for Madelia Truman Granada Huntley East Chain Martin Luther. I teach driver education for Granada Huntley East Chain, Truman, Fairmont and other area students.  

I was born in Wausau Wis. and have 3 brothers. I graduated from Wausau West H.S. in 1971. I went to college at Concordia College in Moorhead Mn. and graduated in 1975. I taught in North Dakota for 3 years first at Pisek and then Adams. I got my masters degree from Mankato State University.

I married Jody in 1976 and we have 4 children. Ryan teaches music in New Prague, Rochelle is a stay at home Mom and presently living in East Chain, Jennifer is a school social worker at Excell Academy in Brooklyn Par , and Katy is an ELL teacher and the BEAM coordinator in Blue Earth. All 4 of our children received a great education right here at Granada Huntley East Chain. We also have 9 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. Jody and I live in East Chain. 

I really enjoy my family and getting together on holidays and family vacations. Our favorite vacation spots are Florida, Branson and the Wisconsin Dells. I enjoy my church and I love most sports. Right now I try to play as much golf as time allows.

 In life I believe you should walk humbly and do everything to the best of your ability!
