Ellen Stone,  K-1 Teacher

IMG_0971Ellen hails from the great state of Georgia and arrived in Boston in 2017 so that she could be closer to her family.  She wanted to be a part of her grandchildren’s lives and that was proving to be difficult when a thousand miles away.  Ellen comes to us with over 30 years of teaching experience!  She has her doctorate in Education and her Masters as well.  She has taught several grade levels and subjects.  Most of all she stands out as a great educator because of her love of children and passion to see them grow and learn. She loves the Lord and is looking forward to sharing that with our kids.
