Welcome!

Hi, my name is Mike Tesema and I am excited to start my first year of teaching here at Bethune in fourth grade. Last year I was a resident teacher at Lyndale Elementary school spending time being in the classroom Monday through Thursday teaching fourth grade. I am happy to be working with the same age group again and we will be having a lot of fun while also learning tools that will help the students’ transition into fifth grade smoothly.

I grew up in Burnsville but have been living in Minneapolis since 2010.My educational background is; I graduated from Augsburg College in 2014 where I received my Bachelors in Sociology. This year I got my Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota. In my free time, I like to spend it playing a variety of sports, reading and hanging out with friends. Feel free to contact me anytime!
