Welcome to 1D!
I would like to take a moment to welcome everyone to my classroom and to introduce myself to you. My name is Elizabeth Gehres and I am excited to be here at Elgin Local Schools teaching first grade! This is my third year here at Elgin.
Here are a few things to help you get to know me better! I grew up in Van Wert county in a small town called Wren. I am the youngest of five kids, although I have a twin sister so technically we are both the youngest! My older brother and two older sisters are all married and have children and I LOVE being an aunt to four nieces and two nephew! I went to The Ohio State University to get my bachelors degree in Human Development and Family Sciences. I later went onto Mount Vernon Nazarene University to get my Masters in Early Childhood Development.
First grade is my favorite and I am so excited for this new school year!
