My name is Elizabeth McElvaney. I am a 4th grade teacher here at Global Leadership Academy Charter School. I graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor of Science degree in education. In addition, I have a certificate to teach Pre-K through 4th grade. Upon graduation, I was awarded with the Cum Laude honor recognizing that I graduated top 16% of my class.
Education is fundamental for an individual to become not only a scholar in the classroom, but also a scholar in society. Education awakens the mind and provides us with endless opportunities. To be educated means to grow and with growth brings clarity in ones own destiny.
I believe that teaching is one of the most rewarding jobs there is. I am responsible for shaping the minds of scholars, and giving them the tools they need to prosper and succeed in life. My goal is to inspire scholars to become life long learners and to meet challenges with confidence and determination.
