About Ms. Ellis

I have been teaching at Spoon River Valley since 1994. I have had many positions here at Valley.  I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade and Title I reading.  

I grew up in Fiatt, Illinois and attended school in Cuba. I attended Spoon River College and MacMurray College in Jacksonville graduating with a Bachelor's degree.  I  continued my education with  graduate classes at Western Illinois University.      

I live in Canton with my daughter, Paige. We have a dog, named Oreo and a cat, named Honey.  I enjoy spending time with my three sisters when we have the chance and in  my free time I enjoy playing the piano,  scrapbooking and attending my daughters activities.  Recently, I have started playing organ at my church.
