Hello FDE Stars!
My name is Elizabeth Morell, and I am thrilled to be teaching first grade at Frederick Douglass Elementary School!
I received my degree in Human Development and Elementary Education from Azusa Pacific University in California. I have over 10 years’ teaching experience working with children, from Pre-Kindergarten to 5th grade. I’ve taught in California, Hawaii, and Virginia.
When I'm not at school, I enjoy reading, walking my dog, traveling, and being Mom to three amazing girls. My oldest daughter is attending University at James Madison in Virginia. Go Dukes! My younger two daughters both attend Rock Ridge High School and are active in the music program.
My goals this year include creating a classroom environment where students are challenged to grow as creative and critical thinkers and where students collaborate and set personal goals. I want to inspire a lifelong love of learning in all students. Being a parent myself, I believe in the partnership between teacher and parent, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about your child’s educational growth and development this year.
