Coach Elliott

     School grades: Elem: A, MS: B, HS: B!! Way to go SJS! #CoyoteNation

    Hello! I hope everyone's summer was great! Mine was packed full with my kids and family, rodeo, life on the ranch, and volleyball and basketball camps!
     Our school theme this year is PUZZLES! My own spin on it is "Putting all the Pieces Together"! because #goodplanningisnotsopuzzling
     To tell you a little bit about me, I am New Mexico true, having only left for college in Colorado and then Texas, and jobs in both states as well.  I graduated with an Associate's from Lamar Community College (Lamar, Colorado), and then I earned my Bachelor's at Tarleton State University (Stephenville, Texas).  I also played volleyball on scholarship at both colleges, as well.  After graduating with my Bachelor's, I went back and taught and coached in Colorado for a couple of years, then moved back to Texas and did the same for a couple of more years before moving back to New Mexico.  I sat out of teaching for a while to be a stay-at-home-mom in Roy, NM; however, I continued to coach girls' volleyball and basketball.  Then we moved back to Quay County, and I coached in Grady while working as a bookeeper.  I then took employment at San Jon Schools 5 years ago and took a break from coaching.  Now, we have happily settled in San Jon making it our home base for both my career and my children's school and we love it!  I am excited to move from Elementary to Middle School, as well as take on Girls' Head Volleyball and Basketball Coaching.  I am a happily married Mom of 4 children, ages 6-23.  We live out on a small ranch near Forrest. 
    Teaching and coaching are truly my passion, and I did not realize how much I missed it until I came back to education 5 years ago.  This will be my 5th year at San Jon Schools, and God had his hand in placing me and my family in this amazing little school district that we are proud to call home.  I am a fierce supporter of all activities the kids of San Jon do, and I proudly love our Coyotes!
