Mrs. Elizabeth Coats

My name is Elizabeth Coats and this will be my 14th year teaching first grade at Eastern.  I am married to my husband, Brandon.  We have 3 beautiful children:  Caleb (6), Kelsey (4), and Carlee (3).  I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in the 2nd grade.  As I grew up, I always loved working with kids and loved school.  Now that I am a teacher, I want to share the love of school with my students. 

I graduated from Campbell University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  Go Camels!  In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family, taking pictures, and cooking.  

I love keeping my students moving and engaged during our lessons.  I love to watch them learn and grow.  I am so excited about this year and all the amazing things we are going to learn and do!
