Hello! My name is Rich Tessler. I teach 9th grade US History, World Cultural Geography, and Physical Geography. This is my first year at Pine Island High School, and I am very excited to be here.

Prior to teaching here, I spent 12 years teaching middle school social studies at Zumbrota Mazeppa. I attended UW La Crosse for my undergraduate studies and Saint Mary's University for my Master's degree.  I live in Rochester with my wife, three kids, two cats, a dog, a turtle, and a salamander.  When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, cycling, camping, fishing and boating.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at, or call me at 507-358-4849 extension 3375.
