She received her Masters of Curriculum and Instruction in 2003 and has served in numerous leadership capacities in her schools.

Ellie’s work with Quantum Learning Education over the past 14 years has taken her to schools, school districts, and a variety of other education organizations including Head Start, GEAR UP, and Kindercare, among others, in many states across the U.S where she has presented keynote addresses as well as distinguished lectures and workshops for inservice days. She always receives top evaluation scores for her workshops and programs.

Ellie has worked many school districts in new teacher orientation, classroom management and research-based, instructional best practices as a part of her work with Quantum Learning.
