Mrs. Knisell

Greetings!  My name is Elizabeth Knisell and I am excited about being your child's 3rd grade teacher!  I have been at East Elementary since 2014 and this is my fourth year teaching 3rd grade.

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, 2 cats, and a large fish tank.  Needless to say, I love animals!  I also love being outdoors, going for walks, riding horses, watching & playing 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!
