Welcome to Mrs. Ellegard's class! I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! Here's a little info about me. I have 3 wonderful girls.

This is my 9th year teaching in the Chandler District, and my 5th year teaching at Patterson. I love this amazing staff and wonderful community here at Patterson.
