Ms. Elliot

I  have two wild boys who I love with all my heart. I have loved teaching since 1997 when I graduated from UNCC. I have taught Kindergarten, First, Third and Fifth grades. Kindergarten is my love. Kindergartners are so energetic and loving. It is very exciting to see the sparks fly when they learn to read, write and count. I couldn't ask for a better job.

I love to sing, watch movies, cheer for Clemson TIgers football in the fall and  have Game Nights with friends and family. I am active in my church, CrossFix Ministries in Belmont.
