Ms. Alison Ritten: Grade 2

Welcome to 2nd grade! 

My name is Alison Ritten and this is my third year teaching second grade here at Dowling School. After completing my student teaching experience at Dowling several years ago, I spent three and a half years teaching second grade in the Saint Paul Public School district. As a Minneapolis native and a product of Minneapolis Public Schools myself, I feel privileged to be back working in this community! 

I received my Elementary Education degree and K-6 teaching license from the University of Minnesota here in the Twin Cities. While teaching in Saint Paul, I completed my Master of Education degree as well. I also hold a bachelor's degree in Asian Languages and Literature from the University of Minnesota.  

I am very excited to have the chance to work and learn with Dowling's second graders this year! If you would like to contact me, please feel free to do so via e-mail at any time:
