Mr. Branstad - Economics and Government - 12th Grade NAAC

My name is Peter Branstad, and this is my first year teaching at North Community High. I was born and raised in Minneapolis, and I've taught in Minneapolis and St. Louis, MO, for the last four years. I bring to North an ability to develop meaningful relationships with students and families, and a drive to prepare students for the world after their K-12 education while helping them to see their own amazing personal skills and abilities. 

I am always looking for community members to come and speak to my classes. If you or someone you know has expertise in finance, small business, local or national governments, political campaigns, or any other subject related to economics and government, please reach out to me at
