Mr. Paul Teske
I started here at Farnsworth in 2021. I have been with St. Paul Public Schools since 1997. I started at North End Elementary (now St. Paul Music Academy) teaching first grade for several years before taking a leave to stay home with my newborn son. I also earned a master's degree at the University of Minnesota during my leave. Prior to coming to Farnsworth, I taught in a fourth grade classroom at Prosperity Heights, which merged with Hayden to form The Heights.
I have two children who are currently enrolled in high school here in St. Paul. My wife is also a long-time preschool teacher within the district. I love being active and outdoors. I enjoy fishing, biking and camping, especially in the mountains out west.
I am energized and amazed at all that we are able to accomplish together here at Farnsworth and I am looking forward to another wonderful year.
