Another interesting day as a middle school teacher...

About Me

Hi Everyone!

My name is Keven Tell and I am a 6th grade science teacher here at Sanford Middle School. I am super excited to be here at Sanford, as well as a member of Team Firworks! This is my 4th year at Sanford Middle School. Since graduating Carleton College in 2009, I had a 2 year stint with AmeriCorps, providing reading and math support to elementary and junior high students respectively in Saint Paul's Rondo complex. I also co-taught 6th/7th grade science at Lake Harriet Upper and 10th grade Honors Chemistry at Southwest High School through a teacher residency program called TC2 Urban Residency. Working with a wide range of ages and populations these last 6 years has been a wonderful learning experience, one I will definitely continue here at Sanford!

When I'm not at school, I love to spend my time cycling, playing video games (both PS3 and X-box One) and hitting the gym! As my first day quiz will also tell you, the following is also true!

- My middle name is Anthony

- My favorite animals are kangaroos, sea lions and killer whales

- I'm deathly afraid of bridges

- If I had one superpower, it would be teleportation

- I love peanut butter, it is the greatest food of all time!
