Welcome to Third Grade

Mrs. Elliott

I think it is important as a teacher to develop trust and respect for both the students and their families.  Part of that trust is being able to share about ourselves to give an understanding of who we are.  We will focus throughout our year how Growth Mindset is very important to our daily accomplishments.  We all face things that we are afraid of, don't like, or are new experiences.  Learning how to tell ourselves that "We can do this" helps us to do anything!


One of my favorite things to do is ride my horse Jolie.  She is a Buckskin Morgan horse. I have had Jolie for 8 years and she is 14 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 three 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 lives and works in Arizona and Sawyer is not working and living in Los Angeles.  I am very proud of each of them.
