First, my name is Arielle, but EVERYONE calls me Elle (pronounced Ellie). I love my nickname because my Grandpa gave it to me when I was little.
I grew up in a small, little town in Michigan. It's the town where you just drive on by unless you need gas or fast food. My high school graduation class was a whopping 75 people. I played different sports, band, and student council. Basically, my high school years were good to me :)
After high school I went to Michigan State University to study special education. College was filled with such fun experiences and I miss it so much. I truly bleed green & white, have never missed a Michigan State football game, more importantly, received a bachelors and masters degree from the best education school.
After college, I decided I needed to spread my wings and fly away. Growing up in Michigan was amazing, but I was ready to experience something bigger. An amazing teaching oppertunity knocked on my door and I answered. I just began teaching 3rd grade for the 2nd year. Teaching is my insane passion and I'm so blessed to have found my calling. Did I mention it's in Las Vegas?!

In what little free time I have I love to read, cook, workout, and visit family and friends. I spend hours on the phone on Saturdays catching up with everyone! I spend my Sunday mornings at church showing my LOVE to God and singing his praise.
