Ms. Tomihiro-4th Grade

Welcome to 4th grade! My name is Jolene Tomihiro and I am a 4th grade teacher at Loring Elementary.  I have been teaching for over 25 years in the Minneapolis School District.  I have been a 5th grade teacher, math specialist and advanced differentiation specialist.  I attended the College of St. Benedict and the College of Charleston where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education.  I received my Masters Degree in Education from St. Mary's University.  I have two children.  My daughter Ally is a sophomore in college at the Universtiy of LaCrosse and my son Garrett is a junior in high school.  In my free time, I enjoy traveling, watching sports, making cards, and watching movies.

I believe it is very important to have a partnership with my students' parents.  Working together, we can help your child achieve.  I will really work to individualize instruction for your child so they can reach their full potential.  I welcome your thoughts and comments. Please feel free to call me or e-mail me at Loring.



Thank you for being a partner in your child's education.  I look forward to a fabulous year!
