My name is Ellie Wright. I am 24 years old from Spokane, Washington! I am currently a student at Utah Valley University and work as a server at a sushi restaurant. I am teaching a third grade classroom currently and I love it so much! It is at a dual immersion school so I only teach language arts and a little bit of math. I believe that a great classroom is one where students feel respected and safe to share their ideas and be creative! I can't wait to have a classroom of my own someday. This will be my first GEA program and I am so excited and happy that I am able to participate. One of my favorite adventures was when I moved to Key West, Florida for 6 months to do an internship. I went with one of my best friends on a whim and it was an incredible experience! I have so many good memories of my time spent there. I can't wait to make memories in Finland, Sweden and Estonia.
