Kathryn Ellis

I am Kathryn Ellis, the new Assistant Principal, of Knollwood Elementary.  I am in love with this new position.  The children at Knollwood Elementary are the most caring children I have ever met.  I am extremely excited about our school year and the success of each student. 

 

I was born and raised in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.  I have lived in 5 different states, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, and now North Carolina.  I have a beautiful daughter in high school.   Our family loves to camp, travel the country, ride motorcycles, and spend summers evenings on a boat.  

 

I have taught and worked with grades K-8th throughout my 25 years in education.  I have a Bachelors in Elementary & Early Childhood, Masters in Special Education, Educational Specialist Degree in Teaching Reading, and National Board Certified in Middle Childhood.

 

I am now a Knollwood Knight and very PROUD to be one!
