My name is Beverly Ann Teachey Ellis. I was born in Richmond, VA. I received my B.S. Degree in Elementary Education from Richmond Professional Institute/VCU. I taught Kindergarten and First Grade at Madison Elementary, an inner city school in Richmond which was eventually razed for the expressway around Richmond. I left the Richmond school and taught Kindergarten at Falling Creek Elementary School in Chesterfield County until I married Rolf N. Ellis, R.Ph (Rex) who died in Sept. 1999. After his death, I worked at Winchester Medical Center for 12 years as a Caring Companion and as a non-medical aide at Outlook Point in Martinsburg, WV. I started working at Braddock Street United Methodist Church ELC in April 2011, as a Floating Assistant Teacher. I work with all the teachers, children, parents, Director, and Assistant Director. I enjoy being part of the team who help meet the needs of children, teachers, and parents. What a win/win way to serve others. Thanks to Braddock Street ELC for the opportunity to serve.
I do my best to be a positive role model and to meet the professional requirements of this position. In an unstable world, our children and families need positive role models and teachers who care.
