My name is Elle Vatterott and I am thrilled to be the new 1st grade teacher at Peabody Elementary! I was born and raised in St. Louis and attended Indiana University- Bloomington. After college I spent three years working in Texas and the Dominican Republic. Through that experience I discovered the dignity of hard work, the value of connecting with my community and the joy that comes from helping children grow.
I spent 5 years in Denver, Colorado where I learned how to snowboard and teach. A little about me personally… I speak Spanish, love to read, my hero is Shakira and I have a 1- year old baby boy.
My goal is to provide every student what he or she needs to excel. I believe that parents are my students’ first teachers so I look forward to working with my students’ families and invite all of you to be a part of our classroom community.
