Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Mr. Tryggeseth. Students call me Mr. T.. I teach fifth grade at Jackson Elementary. This is my first year teaching at Jackson; however, I have taught 5th/6th grade for 12 years in St. Paul Public Schools and 1 year in Tampa, Fl. I also have 9 years of experience as a Principal. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked with teenage males/females in the juvenile correctional system.
My mission as an educator is to provide students with an extraordinary education where they feel valued for who they are and challenged as a learner. Part of an extraordinary education is the support and guidance from families. I welcome you to reach out to me if you need any assistance with school work, behavior concerns or other matters that we, the staff, at Jackson can offer you.I enjoy getting to know my student’s families, so you can expect me to reach out to you in some fashion. Let’s make 5th grade an extremely positive experience for your son or daughter.
Personally, I have two sons, a 25 year old and a 6 year old. I enjoy the travel, the ocean, warm weather, golf, the Minnesota Vikings, cooking, reading about history and any food hot and spicy.
