Mrs. Ellen Toivola

Hello! I'm Mrs. Ellen Toivola, and I am excited to start my tenth year of teaching in St. Paul Public Schools! The 2020-21 school year is sure to be a memorable one.

I am the sixth grade math teacher at our school. I love helping students make sense of math and not simply memorize tricks and formulas. We spend a lot of time on 'why' math works and drawing pictures to illustrate our understanding.

In addition to teaching math, I am the co-athletic director at Global Arts Plus. If you have questions about middle school sports, don't hesitate to email me.

Unfortunately, while we are in distance learning we will not have middle school sports. Hopefully the situation in our country will change soon and we can go back to having our amazing teams.

When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my husband and new daughter. She has learned how to crawl and we are often chasing after her!

Please contact me via email if you have questions or concerns.

It will be a good year.

Mrs. Ellen Toivola
