Mr. Forrest Theisen (He/him/his)

Perhaps like some of you, I'm excited to be starting my first year at Ramsey Middle School!

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 life long learning!
