My Bio

       Hi!  My name is Elaine Connelly, and I have been teaching for 41 years, 39 of them here at IHM!    I have taught first and second grades, and I was a resource teacher for grades 1 through 8 during my first year of teaching.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Special Education from Edgecliff College, and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Xavier University.  I became a teacher because I love kids, and I enjoy seeing their growth in knowledge, experience, and spirituality over the course of a year.  My favorite thing about teaching is seeing children working hard and understanding difficult concepts.  I live in Batavia with my husband Michael, and our son Jared.  I enjoy reading, hiking, working in my yard, and visiting my sister, who lives on Kentucky Lake.
