Erin Elliott grew up in a small town in Southwestern Ontario. She moved to the Ottawa area after high school to attend Carleton University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts Honors in 2002. She returned to school and graduated in 2007 from Nipissing University with her Bachelor of Education.
She started her career at Joan of Arc Academy filling in as the English Grade One and Two teacher. In 2009 she taught her first Grade Five class and knew that was where she belonged. Erin is also an intermediate science teacher. She particularly appreciates that the curriculum allows her to discuss environmental issues and concerns with her students and hopes that together they can make an impact.
When she is not at school, Erin can be found at the arena cheering on her son’s hockey team, practicing piano with her daughter, or walking her Springer Spaniel, Piper.
