Adam Farrell, Social Studies Teacher

My name is Adam Farrell, and I teach 12th Grade Economics and 9th Grade Human Geography at Roosevelt High School. I feel extremely fortunate to be starting my 9th year at this wonderful school and 10th year working for the Minneapolis District.  

I grew up in a small town about 10 miles west of Madison, Wisconsin. After graduating from Mt. Horeb High School, I attended the University of Minnesota. After 5 years, I left the U with a BA in History and a Master’s Degree in Social Studies Education. I have worked for Minneapolis Public Schools ever since. 

My courses focus on bringing in relevant and interesting material to help students become better readers, writers, and thinkers. 

I live in Roseville with my wife and fellow Minneapolis teacher, Bonnie, and our 2-year old son Wally, and our 6th-month-old baby, Rosie.

Please feel free to contact me at with any questions or concerns you may have.
