My name is Mrs. Elftman and I am very excited about teaching 4th grade at Quentin Elementary.
I grew up in a small military town in Southern Arizona in a very strict military family. Because of my upbringing, I focused on my school work and decided that I loved working with children. I attended Northern Arizona University and recieved my bachelors in Elementary Education with a minor in American History. After graduating, I was a substitute teacher in an Excelling school district for half the year and was hired to teach in the Cartwright District. I taught at Desert Sands for the first two years teaching 6th grade and coached baseball/softball. I started off there again in my third year teaching 6th grade, and was transferred over to Borman a few weeks into the year to take over and 8th grade class. That was a challenge, but I am now looking forward to teaching 4th grade. This was the grade that I spent most of my time subbing in and fell in love with the age group.
