Hello! My name is Tessa Ellis and I was hired as Bell Township’s second grade teacher in February 2013. Teaching is my passion and I am so excited to have been given the opportunity here in Punxsutawney.
I graduated from Clarion University in December 2011 with certifications in special education, early childhood education, and elementary education. I was a substitute teacher for Punxsutawney and other surrounding school districts before I was hired full-time.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, singing and playing guitar, and other various activities. My family consists of my husband, our 2 year old son, and our golden retriever. Education has always been of highest importance to me, since both of my parents are also teachers. I want you to know that I will always try my hardest to make sure your child is a successful student and reaching his/her fullest potential.
I truly feel that if all of us communicate and work together, each child can achieve success. I encourage you to please e-mail me at email@example.com or call if you ever have any questions or concerns.
