Calee McElwain
3rd Grade Teacher
Calee McElwain image

I started my teaching career 25 years ago right here at Ballard, teaching combined 3rd & 4th grades and 7-12 Spanish. I have taught other grade levels during my career, and also served in district leadership capacities at my last two districts. I spent 12 years at Ray-Pec, where I taught 6th grade and was an Instructional Coach, Literacy Coach, and Curriculum Specialist. I spent the past 2 years at Butler as the Curriculum Director/HS Instructional Coach. At this point in my career, I felt it was time for a change and I wanted to spend some time back in the classroom with kids. I have one daughter, Marissa, who teaches 4th grade here at Ballard. I am looking forward to teaching next door to her! I also have two dogs, Pearl and Daisy, who are lab mixes, and a grandcat named Norman. In my free time I like to travel, work out, read, crochet, play golf, and spend time with friends and family. I teach classes online for University of Phoenix, which takes up some of my free time as well.
