Getting to Know Mr. Tollefsrud
Work Phone: 507-493-5422 ext. 244
Hello and welcome to my website. This is the place where you can find out a little about me and aplace to find information about the different class I will be teaching this year. On this site you will find my expectations and my philosophy of teaching.
Now a little bit about me. This is my 12th year at Mabel-Canton and I am very excited about this school year. I am looking forward to being part of our students growth in education and into young adulthood. I previously spent 5 1/2 years teaching in Stewartville at the middle school. I was hired there right out of college and had a very good experience there. It was a tough decision to leave but decided to make the change because of the people in the Mabel - Canton district. As a former student of Mabel-Canton, I believe I received a good education with many opportunities with in the district. I like the small town and small school atmosphere.
After graduating from Mabel-Canton in 1997 I attended the University of Wisconsin STOUT in Menomonie, WI. I started my educational experience in a design field but after 2 years decided that this was not what I wanted to do. I changed my major to Technology Education (Industrial Technology). This was definitely a good move for me. I love teaching and I enjoy being able to coach and watch individuals mature.
I received my Masters in Technology Education from St. Cloud State University in 2007. I have also received a certification in Work-Based Learning and Career and Technical Education from Bemidji State University.
I've been married for 16 years to my wonderful wife Sarah. We have 4 boys, who keep us very busy. The oldest, Jaymeson, is 15 and is in 9th grade, the middle children, Cayden (13), who is in 7th grade, Brevyn who is 9 and is in 3rd grade, and Treyson who is 8 and in 2nd grade. It is amazing how fast they grow up. Each day is an adventure!
This is a little information about me and my family. I look forward to having a positive impact on the students in this community.
