Welcome to my teacher website! 

SUBJECT: Elementary 



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 tellis@punxsy.k12.pa.us  or call if you ever have any questions or concerns.
