Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Marilyn Elliott

I am Mrs. Elliott, your child's Kindergarten Teacher.  I am looking forward to spend the coming year with you!  I am excited to be a part of the Highland Elementary School Family, where we inspire everyone to be lifelong learners.

I was born in Portland, OR and grew up in Washington State.  I met and married my Air Force husband after college.  We have 3 daughters and 1 son.  I love to travel.  Our family has lived in Washington State, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Germany & North Carolina!  We have lived in North Carolina the longest, which is 20 years.  Sharing who we are, what we know, and what we want to know about ourselves and others is an integral part of our global education.

For the 20-21 school year, my students will begin learning remotely.  I am excited to get started teaching your child.  We will soon be reading, counting, writing, listening and speaking as we explore Literacy, Math, Social Studies, Health and Science.  

I am dedicated to presenting the teaching standards through the best practices of whole group, small group and individual instruction in our new, unique setting.  This year will be an adventure in learning and it is my goal to join with you to help your child learn, grow, and succeed!

I am happy to conference with you virtually to address any concerns and questions at any time throughout the school year.  I am happy to communicate with you in individual Google Meets, messages on Class Dojo, or email me at or simply call the school office at 919-499-2200 to leave me a message.
