My name is Mrs. Elam.  I love teaching and learning new things.  This is my first year to teach kindergarten. I taught first grade for 18 years with two of those years being at RCS.  I am so excited to start a new adventure in Kindergarten.  I graduated from ISU with a bachelor in Elementary Education.   I live in Paxton with my husband and our two children.  They are 15 and 12.  In my spare time, I love to read and spend time with my family. 

I firmly believe that every child is unique and deserves a chance to learn in a safe, friendly and positive atmosphere.   This is my driving force as a teacher.  I seek to inspire children and promote intellectual curiosity; to project a positive attitude about students' ability to learn; and to provide opportunities for children to learn in an encouraging environment where they feel comfortable to share their thoughts, feelings and knowledge, resulting in personal growth.  As my students walk in my classroom, I want them to feel loved, safe and cared for.
