Mary Ellis

I am a special education intervention specialist at Toll Gate Middle. I have over twenty-five years experience in the field of education which includes teaching both elementary and special education in grades one through eight. I began teaching in the Pickerington Local School District in 1998, and have been teaching at Toll Gate Middle since its opening in 2009. I currently teach in a co-taught, full inclusion classroom setting. Targeting specific skills with small groups and individuals is a very important and rewarding part of my daily instruction. The aspects of teaching I enjoy most are seeing the spark in my students' eyes when they know they've accomplished a goal, and getting students excited about reading!
