Mrs. Elizabeth Coats

Hello!  My name is Elizabeth Coats and I just completed my 15th year teaching 1st grade at Eastern.  I am married to my husband, Brandon.  We have 3 beautiful children:  Caleb (8), Kelsey (6), and Carlee (4).  I have wanted to be a teacher ever 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 learning 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 looking forward to the summer to spend time with family and relax!  I hope you have a wonderful summer as well!
