Holly Ellis, a Troy resident, will lead Lincoln Elementary beginning July 1, 2014. The Lincoln County R-III School District hired Ellis to replace Principal Amy Porter after her promotion to Director of Elementary Curriculum, which also begins on July 1, 2014.
Ellis has taught in the Wentzville School District since 2003. In 2010, she was promoted Assistant Principal at Lakeview Elementary in the Wentzville School District. Ellis has a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and a Masters of Art in Educational Administration from Lindenwood University. She said building strong relationships, team work and open communication will be the focus of her service in the R-III District.
“My vision is one that entails that all students, teachers, support staff and community are actively engaged in the learning process and that our students’ social, emotional, and academic needs are put first each and every day,” she said.
Ellis is a native of Minnesota and relocated to Troy in 1999. She will begin her position in the Lincoln County R-III School District on July 1, 2014.
