|Teshome is pictured here with his two daughters, Naty and Melat.|
The girls are excited to be enrolled in U.S. schools.
Now Teshome is a full-fledged Sooner!!! His time is currently divided between his family, his research, and "going back to studies" in aquatic chemistry and environmental biology/ecology. His wife's name is Selamawit, and he has three children - daughters Natanim (16 yrs old) and Melat (10 yrs old) and son Daniel (2 1/2 yrs old). The girls are adjusting to life in U.S. public schools, and they especially like music, reading (like their father) and swimming. Teshome is a member of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church which has an active congregation in nearby Oklahoma City.
