K -6th Grade SDC
Welcome to Ella Elementary School, home of the Gators!
My name is Rachel Stevenson, the K-4th SDC teacher. This is my fourth year here at Ella as the Special Day Class teacher. Before becoming a teacher I was a Para Educator for 6 years for MJUSD. This began my love for teaching. Just a little bit about myself, I have been happily married for 21 years to my husband Micheal and have three children, ages 22, 20 and 17. I enjoy spending time with my family fishing, relaxing at the beach and gold panning. My goal for this school year is for my students to believe in their abilities and to apply them appropriately in all settings. I have a quote on my wall for my students "Remember you are stronger than you seem, braver than you believe and smarter than you think you are."
Hello, I am Susan Estabrook, the 5th & 6th grade SDC teacher here at Ella. I have been a Para Educator for 16 years, 9 at MJUSD and this is my second year teaching. I have a wonderful husband of 38 years, and three grown children and ten grandchildren! I enjoy baking and sometimes share that joy with my students. I love being a teacher and truly enjoy my students. My hope is that my students will find our classroom to be a safe and inviting environment where they can learn to their maximum potential.
