My name is Karissa Ellis and this year I will be teaching fourth grade reading, language arts, and social studies. I graduated from Kountze High School in 2008 and Lamar University with a Bachelor of Arts in English in 2012. I married Tucker Ellis in March 2013. We have a one year old son named Jase. We also have two dogs, a three year old chocolate lab named Sarge and a two month old aussie poo named Flynn. I enjoy reading and being outdoors. I spent three years teaching at Silsbee High School and one year teaching at Port Neches-Groves High School. I am beyond excited to be back home.
