Mr. Forrest Theisen (He/him/his)

Like many of our 7th graders, this is my second year at Ramsey.

I have a background in biology and environmental advocacy. I love everything that gets me outside including biking (year-round in MN), canoeing, backpacking, fishing, and sports.

I'm thrilled to be teaching 7th Grade Life Science and IB MYP Design. I look forward to diving into studying the natural world and the processes of inquiry and engineering. In my class, be ready to DO science, not just learn about science. Please come with an open mind and be ready to work without all the answers. I want my students to make discoveries, not be told the answers. Everyone is a scientist in my class.

I look forward to working with you on our journey to lifelong learning!
