Mr. Jeffrey Triest


My name is Jeff Triest (my last name is pronounced like the word “priest” with a T). My teaching experience includes many years in upper elementary, mostly in 5th grade.  I also taught kindergarten in South Korea for 16 months.  
I am married to my wife Eryn.  We have two sons named Jameson and Bennett and a daughter named Maci. We live here in Shakopee.  In my free time I enjoy traveling, hunting, fishing, rock climbing, running, playing guitar and playing video games. I love to watch and play sports too. My favorite sport is football.
Welcome to 5th grade.  Let the learning begin!
