Welcome to Ms. Tolish's Class!

  • Hello! My name is Elise Tolish and I am so happy to teach kindergarten at Bruce Vento Elementary. I believe that kindergarten is a special place and my goal is to foster a love of learning and help students build confidence as learners. In our classroom, we are kind, safe, responsible, and we work hard every day to grow our brains! 

    I live in St. Paul with my husband, Brian, and our very fun daughter, Mara. I love to cook, hike, sing, listen to music, and travel. I began teaching in 2010 and have had experience working with students in South Korea and throughout the Twin Cities. I look forward to learning more about you and your family throughout the school year!
