Hello! My name is Miss Lauren Ellis and I teach second grade at Yardville school. Having attended Yardville myself, I am thrilled to be teaching in such a wonderful community.
While 2018-2019 will be my sixth year teaching at Yardville, I have had many experiences in education. I have a bachelors degree in elementary and early childhood education from Gwynedd-Mercy College. I have a Masters degree in education and English as a Second Language from Rider University. I have taught in San Diego, California, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and Hamilton. My experience teaching spans from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade in regular education as well as special education.
I am a person with many interests! I grew up on Ellis Farms in Yardville. I enjoy indoor rock climbing, biking, and so many other outdoor activities. I also love to read. I have been singing with the Voices of Gwynedd from Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania for 12 years now and have been fortunate to perform in some awesome places! I also enjoy traveling oversees, to the west coast of the US, and upstate Pennsylvania to my family cabin. I'm also tackling finally learning the piano this year!
When I think of my experience in second grade, I remember being so lucky to have a teacher that was dedicated to building her students' confidence through her instruction everyday. I am sure you have similar experiences with teachers who stand out in your mind. I love teaching and my passion is to help make each child feel they are successful, they belong, they are accepted, and their differences are celebrated! I believe the teaching profession to be one of the most important ones because we are preparing children for their and our futures. I really look forward to teaching your children and working with your families.
