"Be the change you wish to see in the world." -Mahatma Gandhi

This quote influences my daily decisions as a human being in our society. My name is E(liz)abeth Eslami, and I was born and raised in Burlington, Iowa. I truly believe that in order to create positive change in the world, you have to BE the change and lead by example. This is what drove me to become a teacher because I want students to see their amazing potential, every single day, so that they can help change our world! 

I attended the University of Northern Iowa where I dual majored in elementary and middle level education. After college, I moved to Kansas City, MO where I taught elementary school for 5 years-primarily math. This is our first year back in Iowa, and we couldn't be any happier! I am so excited to teach literacy and LA because it's a subject I am extremely passionate about, and I love helping students find their passion for reading!

I'm all about open communication so please feel free to email me anytime. You can also call or text- just email me first, if possible, so I can share my number.
