Alison Ritten

Welcome 2nd Grade!


My name is Alison Ritten and I began teaching at Dowling School in 2014. After completing my student teaching experience at Dowling in 2010, I spent three and a half years teaching second grade in the Saint Paul Public School district. As a South Minneapolis native and a product of Minneapolis Public Schools myself, I feel very pleased and privileged to be working in this community!

I received my Elementary Education degree, K-6 teaching license, and Master of Education degree from the University of Minnesota here in the Twin Cities. 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:
