Mr. Jacob Bambenek


My name is Jacob Bambenek and I am the physical education teacher at Chelsea Height Elementary in St. Paul Public Schools. 2018/19 is my second year here. 

I am originally from a small-town call Trempealeau, WI. While growing up here I played many sports (football, basketball and track). After high school I went to Winona State University. Being from Wisconsin, I am naturally a Packer fan. When I am not teaching and enjoying sports, I love to travel and see the world. I am been to Europe several times and am even thinking about a trip to China. 

During the year we will focus on many different skills, activities and games. The goal of those is to move, have fun, learn/improve skills.

  • Families of Chelsea Heights,


    I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your support of Jump Rope for Heart. Without your help we would have never been able to raise over $3,500 to fight heart disease. As you many have heard to celebrate our accomplishment we brought in students from every class to jump rope on February 28th.


    Thank you,


    Mr. B

  • On November 28, 2018 Chelsea Heights Elementary School was lucky to have representatives from the Minnesota Wild lead us in an assembly. Nordy, Rusty Kath (in-game host), Minnesota Wild alumni and Stanley Cup champion, Ryan Carter; and Olympic gold medalist, Hannah Brandt joined us for this event. This awesome group shared many important facts about fitness and health. Students were able to submit questions for Hannah and Ryan on the topic of fitness and health. To finish the assembly, two students were teamed up with Ryan Carter or Hannah Brandt with Nordy as goalie. As a last surprise to our school the Minnesota Wild donated awesome new hockey equipment ranging from hockey sticks to goalie pads.

    From our whole school, we would like to say thank you to the Minnesota Wild organization as well as Nordy, Rusty, Ryan and Hannah for their time. Their assembly was informative, exciting and engaging.
