Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lisa Ellis
Ever since I was in 4th grade I knew I wanted to be a teacher. My favorite teachers instilled in me the desire to be the BEST that I could be for the people whom I came to know and love. Little children are the most vulnerable and most moldable human beings that I am grateful to be able to teach. I hope all of my students always know that I want ONLY THE BEST FOR THEM.
I was born and raised in Idaho in a small town in North Central Idaho--Cottonwood, ID. I had a humble and wholesome upbringing that allowed me to play four sports (Volleyball, Basketball, Track, and Softball) all the years of my high school career. Fortunately, I was able to attend Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, ID and be a 4-year basketball athlete as well as earn a Bachelor's Degree in Education. The memories and friendships I made in my college career are forever etched in my mind. These experiences have allowed me to strive to be the best person and teacher I can be.
I have been married to my husband, Joe for 15 years. We have 2 beautiful miracle children, Susie Marie (1st grade at Summerwind) and Lincoln Joseph (4 years old). I have many blessings in my life, and I am grateful for them. My parents and siblings are very involved in my family's life. As the saying goes, "It takes a Village to raise our children." I appreciate the support I receive to be your child's teacher from my family, my students' families, and everyone in the community.
As unpredictability and uncertainty continue in this 2021-22 school year, please know that I am HERE for you and your student. We will learn and grow together, and we will come out of these challenging days stronger and better. I am so excited to be your child's teacher at Summerwind STEM Academy! #summerwindstrong
