Degrees and Certifications:
B.S. Elementary Education
My name is Elena Williams and I teach third grade English Language Arts in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I have been teaching for Calcasieu Parish School Board for four years. After graduating McNeese State University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, I found my professional home at St. John Elementary. With a love for reading and books, third grade ELA was a perfect fit for me. I believe that every child can learn to love reading and love reading to learn. Being able to take my students on adventures through literature is the perfect way to achieve this goal and I continue to strive toward it each and every year. In my spare time away from teaching, I like to play with my son, Brodey, and our dog, Louie. We frequently visit the dog park and take walks together. I love to travel and plan trips to see the world.
