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 Harnett County, North Carolina for more than 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 2021-2022 school year, 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 available to conference with you virtually or in person to address any concerns and questions at any time throughout the school year.  I provide regular communication with families through whole class announcements and private messages on Class Dojo, or email me at or simply call the school office at 919-499-2200 to leave me a message.
