This is Coach Ellis's sixth year to work at Lorena Middle School. Coach Ellis teaches 7th grade Math and provides intervention to 7th and 8th graders in Math and Reading as well as Coaching in the Girls Athletics Program.
Below is a portion of the nomination letter Coach Ellis received:
I would like to recommend Coach Ashley Ellis for teacher of the month. She has done an outstanding job this year working with students across multiple grade levels and subjects. She works with each of her students individually to see that they are caught up in all core classes and fills in any gaps they may have. Coach Ellis also works hard as a coach. She displays love for each of her athletes while teaching them the sport. In addition to her coaching and teaching, she has been instrumental in finding technology resources for her students, but then shares them with the rest of her middle school colleagues in an effort to help all students. Lorena Middle School is blessed to have her on our team.
If you would like to nominate an educator for Teacher of the Month, please contact Dr. Drews the LMS office at 254-857-4621.
