My name is Colleen Ellis and this is my seventh year back in the district, but my 31st year of teaching. I was born in Fort Worth, TX, and raised and graduated high school in Bastrop, TX . I went to college at Southwest TX State University and started my teaching career in Wimberley, as the school was just getting set up. I taught here from 1987-1994 in the Danforth building,teaching 7th and 8th grade Science and Biology. My husband and I moved to Iowa Park, TX in 1994 where we lived and taught for 16 years with a daughter, Haley, born in 2000. We loved living here before and are very happy to be back. My husband Chris is a coach and is here at Wimberley High School also. I enjoy reading, watching movies, watching my daughter's many activities,and of course watching Wimberley Texan Football. Our daughter is a senior this year at the High School. This year I will be teaching Biology PAP and Environmental Systems. I am looking forward to a great year!
