Mr. Hessian grew up in Saint Louis Park and now lives in Saint Paul with his wife Michele, a son named David, and Winston the Great Dane. He graduated from Winona State University and got his teaching degree through Western Governors University.
Mr. Hessian played tennis through college and was a teaching professional for five years before entering the classroom. He loves to go hiking, swimming, cross country skiing, exploring, and playing a variety of sports. He enjoys almost any activity that gets him out in nature. He also likes to read and listen to music when he can.
Mr. Hessian is excited to be working at Natural Science Academy because of the science focus and emphasis on outdoors. The outdoors are all around us waiting to be explored and can teach everyone important lessons and he believes that it is a shame not to utilize it.
