Ms. Alison Ritten: Grade 2

Welcome to 2nd grade! 

My name is Alison Ritten and I began teaching here at Dowling School during the 2014-2015 school year. 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 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:
