Welcome to Mrs. Ellis' First Grade Class. I am so excited for our year together. I have been working here at Mesquite for 23 years. I started as an Instructional Assistant and helped children in all grades and programs. Most of my teaching years have been in Second Grade, but I did get the chance to teach Third Grade for two years. Now I am teaching First Grade and I am loving it!!
I was born here in Gilbert and graduated from Gilbert High School. I received my Masters Degree through NAU. I am a mom of two wonderful children. My daughter attended Mesquite Elementary (K-6), and my son is now in 6th. I like to write and one of my stories has been published, Oh, The Places We Have Been! I also like to go camping, snowboarding, dancing and love to go to the beach.
