Welcome to 7th Grade Science 2020-2021!
My name is Elena Stephens, and I began teaching at ELMS in February of 2020. Prior to that I was a teacher in Gwinnett County Public Schools where I taught 7th grade Life Science and Math to English language learners. Over the years I have worn many hats, but before becoming a teacher I worked for several years in the field of finance. In the spring of 2012, I received my Bachelor of Middle-Secondary Education and Instructional Technology degree from Georgia State University, graduating Summa cum laude. Due to family circumstances I worked as a substitute teacher until December 2014 when I began my full time teaching position with Gwinnett County. I spent the first three teaching semesters in a highly selective, grant-funded program at the University of Georgia where I earned my certification in English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and I look forward to being able to use my prior experiences to instill a lifelong love of science learning to all my ELMS students!
