Dana Elfering

I am so happy to be at Kenwood! I started teaching in 2006 and have taught all grades from kindergarten to fifth grade. I am married to Gary, we have two grown children, one son-in-law and one perfect little granddaughter! 

Kindergarteners have a contagious enthusiasm and a zest and exuberance that inspires their curiosity. They are amazing learners! I would like to thank the Kenwood parents for giving me the opportunity to partner with you as an educator for your child. I hope to instill a life-long love of learning in a nurturing and fun environment that will motivate the kids to continue learning and wondering about the world around them. The academic and emotional growth of Kindergarteners from fall to spring is the most astounding changes, and it is exciting to watch and be a part of!  

Please reach out to me at dana.elfering@mpls.k12.mn.us with any questions or concerns.
