Greetings! My name is Elizabeth Knisell and I am excited to be your child's 3rd grade teacher! I have been with East Elementary since 2014 and this is my first year as a teacher.
My husband and I moved here in 2012 from Fort Campbell. My husband retired from the Army in 2019 and we decided to make the Fort Leonard Wood area our home. I became a mom to our wonderful daughter in November 2019 and I absolutely love her to pieces. She is my purest form of joy.
I grew up in Minnesota on a hobby farm and we have continued that lifestyle here. We currently have 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 3 cats. Needless to say, I love animals! I also love being outdoors, going for walks, riding horses, watching baseball, and rollerblading.
I consider it a privilege and an honor to have the opportunity to work with your child this year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am here to help!
