Ellen Henriksen

5th Grade Teacher

I am a North Carolina native who has lived abroad, traveled, and discovered that there was no better place to call home but North Carolina.  Coats Elementary has been my place to expand young 4th and 5th Graders since 2008.  I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (K-6), along with a Bachelor of Science degree in Fish and Wildlife Management. I enjoy the Great outdoors, Carolina Brightleaf Hotdogs off the grill, Mecum Auto Auctions, NCIS, and the Big Bang Theory reruns, along with Dr. Who.
