About Me

Hi, my name is Mrs. McElheny, and I am your first grade teacher. I am thrilled you are in my class this year!  I can’t wait to meet each one of you and find out all about you. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I have been teaching for a very long time. This will be my 32nd year. I’ve taught kindergarten and fourth grade, but my favorite grade to teach is first grade. I love watching students learn to read because it’s exciting to open up a whole new world that is only found in books! I am married and have two grown sons named Zach and Nick. My son Zach is married to Whitney. They have a son named Owen who will be turning 1 in September. My son Nick is married to Allie and they are expecting a baby boy in December. I am excited to be a grammy for a second time!! I love to read, walk, run, and swim. I love to cook and bake for my family! I also love to play with my 5 year old black lab, Lexi! She is a lot of fun, but a bit of a challenge for me. When she was a puppy she ate a sock so I always need to keep my eyes on her. She’s always getting into some kind of  trouble! You will hear a lot about Lexi this year because she is always doing something worth talking about. I can’t wait to begin school. We have so many new things to learn and achieve this year!
