Greetings! Welcome to Kindergarten at Dowling School. My name is Elizabeth Frisby and I am delighted to have your child in my classroom. Kindergarten is a year of learning and growing, and I am excited to share in this special year with you.

I have been a Literacy/Instructional Specialist and have taught K-6 in Minneapolis for 27 years. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from St. Cloud State, a masters from St. Thomas in Curriculum and Instruction, and I also have two certifications from the college of St. Catherine for E-1 Montessori and STEM education. Currently, I am one of the Project GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition & Design) trainers.

Outside of school, I love spending time with family and friends, reading, and going for long walks. My husband and I have two daughters; one is a junior in college, and the other is a senior in high school. When we have free time, we enjoy going up north to visit family and taking road trips.

I’m looking forward to getting to know your family as we start this distance learning journey together. Communication between home and school is a priority. The kindergarten team will be sending out weekly updates regarding distance learning other important information. If you have any questions throughout the year, please feel free to email at: elizabeth.frisby@mpls.k12.mn.us or use the Remind app.
