Welcome to Third Grade

Mrs. Elliott

Third grade is such an important year for students.  It is the year where they begin the transition from a primary elementary student to intermediate elementary.  We learn more independently and really focus on the skills for learning.  Our class learns about Growth Mindset to always keep us moving forward and growing even though we can't do that "YET". I treasure all the time I have with your children and love to see them learn and grow throughout the year.  

A little about me
One of my favorite things to do is ride my horse Jolie.  She is a Buckskin Morgan horse. I have had Jolie for 10 years and she is 15 years old.  I enjoy my ride time on the weekends and school breaks. I compete in Western Dressage on Jolie, which is fun and challenging.  We ride patterns in an arena together.  I enjoy some workout time as well and walking my two dogs. Felix the cat keeps us all in line....  My kids are grown up now and making their own way, now that they have completed school. Emma will be returning to Colorado (from Arizona) to work here with her Fiance and new baby girl, Avery.  My son Sawyer is living and working in Los Angeles with his puppy, Huncho (a French Bulldog).  We enjoy our family time together when we can, especially on our boat.
