Mrs. Monica Ellis
Welcome to 5th Grade. I am so excited to be part of this wonderful teaching and learning experience. I have been teaching for Craven County Schools for twelve years. I have taught in the self-contained special education setting for 4th and 5th graders at Creekside Elementary School. I taught regular ed in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade as well at the Creek as we referred to it.
My favorite subjects are Math and Science. But I am gaining a love for teaching Reading to my students. I absolutely love my profession of working with students. I truly enjoy it when a student's love of learning shines through, because then I know I have made a difference in their lives.
I am married to a retired Coast Guardsman; we have been married for over 30 years. We have two amazing children; we also have 3 wonderful grandchildren. I love spending time with my family. We also have 2 crazy cats.
