I attended Northern Arizona University where I received my BA in Elementary Education.

My Message

Hello, my name is Laurie Ellzey and I am excited to be a part of the Sun Valley Charter family. I have been working with children for over a couple of decades. I owned my own in home day care, as well as worked in a Preschool as a lead teacher. Once my daughters were older, I returned to college to obtain my teaching degree, I have taught Kindergarten, First and Second grades in Lake Havasu City for ten years. I grew up in Scottsdale and as a young adult moved to Lake Havasu City for twenty-two years and then moved back to North Phoenix to help care for my mom. I have two daughters, one recently graduated from Anthem College and the other is working as a nanny. I am also the proud mom of a dog and a cat, too. Some of my favorite activities to do in my down time are: hiking, camping, sewing, watch movies, road trips to learn more of our great country and spending time with my family and friends. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year getting to know my students as well as their parents.
