Who is Mr. Thein?
Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument
Look how much fun we're having!


My name is Peter Thein, and I teach 7th grade Social Studies as well as one section of ELA. I look forward to working with you and your student this school year to achieve greatness! I have been a licensed Social Studies Teacher for the past two years, as well as a paraprofessional  before my licensure working in classrooms with diverse student populations. I hold two bachelor's degrees, one obtained from Minnesota State Univeristy of Moorhead and a second from Saint Cloud State University. I believe strongly in public education, and the importance of an enclusive and equitable learning environment for every student; no exceptions. 

I enjoy visiting historical sites in my community and around the nation, learning as a life-long process, passionatly cheering on my Minnesota Twins, Vikings, Timberwolves and Wild, and taking my cat for walks with my girlfriend, Sierra. Most of all, I cherish and value the opportunity to teach and instruct your student in a subject I condisder of the upmost importance.
