Elizabeth grew up all along the coast of California as her father was in the Navy. This gave her the opportunity to experience many different schools in her life in many different ways. She found that teachers were the ones who shaped her experiences and made moving around every year not so rough on her. After working in respite care for many years, Elizabeth decided to complete her bachelor’s degree and then taught fourth and fifth grade in a private charter school. There, she found teaching to be her calling.
Though she still continues to move from place to place, iLEAD has made it so no matter where she is, she can continue to pursue her passion.
