Ms. Alex Ellis

Hello! My name is Alex Ellis, and I'm thrilled to be part of the ELA Department at Waynesville High School. 

I was born and raised in this area, having graduated from Crocker in 2011, before I went on to attend Ozarks Technical Community College, and later Missouri State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Upon completing my undergraduate studies, I pursued a Master of Arts in K-12 School Counseling through Adams State University. At the same time as my graduate studies, I took an alternative route to teacher certification to pursue my passion for English. I am licensed to teach 5-12 ELA and for K-12 School Counseling. Before teaching at Waynesville, I was a high school ELA teacher in Crocker for 4 years. 

As a teacher, nothing is more important to me than building relationships with my students and letting them know that I care about them and their learning. When I'm not trying to instill a love of the English language into high school students, I'm often found playing with my dogs, spending time at home with my family, and obsessing over the holidays. 

I can't wait to get started this year and look forward to many years as a Waynesville Tiger!
