Welcome to Ms. Lisa's Class!

My name is Lisa Mitchell, and I am the High-5 teacher at Folwell School.  This is my 5th year teaching High-5 at Folwell, and my 10th year teaching High-5 in the district.  I attended Concordia College in Moorhead, MN for my undergraduate work, and the University of MN for my Masters in Education.

I live in Minneapolis with my husband and 3 girls (who also attend Minneapolis Public Schools!).  I enjoy camping, running, reading, traveling, and watching movies.  I love animals, chocolate, coffee, and of course, working with children!

I believe that parent-teacher relationships, and good home-school connections are necessary for maximum school success.  I welcome all parents and guardians to visit my classroom as we learn through talking, reading, writing, singing, dancing, and playing.  Strong and consistent family support helps High-5ers every day…by working together, I know we are going to have a great school year ahead!
