Hello and welcome parents, students, and other enthusiasts! My name is Ms. Ellis and I teach ELD and English 9. I hail from the small town of Newbury Park where people are early to sleep and early to rise, but now I live in the bustling city of Long Beach. It was here that I completed my education from California State University, Long Beach and the University of California, Irvine. When not in the classroom I will be out dancing, biking, hiking, or discovering new places to eat. Thus far, the best thing I've eaten are doughnuts.
