Grade 3 ESL Ms. Ana Ruiz McLafferty

Bienvenidos a 3rd grade ESL!


I am delighted to begin my first year teaching at Folwell Performing Arts Magnet!  Before teaching at Folwell, I taught for three years in Japan and Thailand and two years in the Twin Cities.  I have a double teaching license in K-12 ESL and K-12 Art from Hamline University.  I am currently working on my MA in ESL at Hamline.  In my free time, I love painting, dancing, and exploring Minneapolis on my bicycle.

I look forward to meeting and teaching all of my wonderful 3rd grade students this year!  Please feel free to contact me at or at 612-668-4574.


Warm Regards,

Ms. Ana
