Hello!  My name is Mrs. Ellison. This is my twenty-third year to teach school.  I graduated from Hewitt-Trussville High School in 1989.  I went to college at Jacksonville State University where I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees. I have been married to Thad Ellison for twenty-two years.   He is a salesman for BSN Sports.  I have two daughters, Ashley and Abbey.  We have a Shitzu dog named Pugs.  I love spending time with my family, friends, and hanging out at the beach!  My favorite food is chicken, and my favorite color is brown.  My favorite book characters are Jack and Annie from The Magic Tree House. We learn a lot of exciting things in first grade! The most exciting thing you will learn is how to become a great reader!  We will learn a lot about science and math too!   I will email a weekly skills agenda and you can also visit our class Facebook page!
