My name is Vaden Ellwanger, and this is my second year teaching second grade! I am so excited to join the Bulldog community and get to know each of you.
I am originally from Raleigh, NC and went to TCU for my undergraduate and graduate degrees (Go frogs!). I loved Texas so much that I decided to stay and make the move from Fort Worth to Dallas. Last year, I spent my first year teaching in Grapevine-Colleyville. I have a twin brother and love going back home to visit my family when I can. I also enjoy spending the day in Fort Worth, trying new restaurants, and walking the Katy trail on the weekends.
As a teacher, I believe in creating a classroom environment where students feel valued, safe, and important. My goal is to teach students how to love school and love working with others. I am excited to get to know your family and look forward to a wonderful school year at Boone!
