Principal Dr. Lloyd Winfield

I am honored and excited to be the principal of Dowling. During my many years as both teacher and assistant principal in the Minneapolis Public Schools, I have heard many great things about the staff and families at Dowling. As I begin my leadership journey at Dowling I realize that I have the great fortune to follow in the footsteps of two of MPS's finest principals, Mr. Joe Rossow and Dr. Jeff Raison. Through their visionary leadership Dowling became one of the gems of the Minneapolis Public Schools. Working together, we will continue making this community a great place for children and adults to learn and grow. 

My door is open and I believe one of the cornerstones of strong communities is communication, collaboration, and support. I welcome the opportunity to discuss and resolve or support concerns and ideas, whether they are individual or affect the entire school. I am excited to be here and look forward to meeting and working with our students, their families, staff and neighbors of Dowling school.
