My name is Elisia Green. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a bachelors degree in elementary education. I have lived in Utah my whole life. I have two kids who have been enrolled at Hawthorn Academy since they started kindergarten so I know what a great school this is and I am very happy to be teaching second grade here. My kids are the center of my world and my first priority, this includes all of my students. I chose to be a teacher because kids make life interesting! You can never be bored in a room filled with the creativity and innocence of twenty-seven second graders. The things they think and just blurt out without a care in the world is not only inspiring at times, but they are frequently just plain hilarious!! When I'm not teaching or planning lessons, I like to travel, spend time with my family, and read. I am looking forward to a new year and I'm always excited to meet a new group of students.
