Elisa DeWitt, Principal
Hello! I am honored and blessed to be Principal at Upton Lake! I have taught kindergarten here for 7 years and absolutely loved it, but God led me back to leadership. When my own 4 children were little, the age of the kids here in our elementary school, I was Director of a large Nursery School near our home for 12 years. I am excited to have the opportunity to get to know your children and families at ULCS, a very special school with which I have a history going back to its very beginning.
A little about the professional me... I graduated with a B.S. in elementary education and I earned my Masters Degree in Reading. From the time I was 11 I have worked with children. They are my passion! I have been a teacher, a Director, I've advised many parents on how to set boundaries with their children, led many VBS programs, and so much more. The beauty of my life's work is I have been placed by God where I can share and teach about Jesus and His love and forgiveness. I love to be here at Upton Lake because God is our center for everything!
A little about the personal me... My family is a wonderful blessing in my life! I have an amazing husband and three sons and a daughter. (I also have lots of pets that bring such joy to my life!) Although my children are not little anymore we enjoy spending lots of time together. From our vacations to our regular dinners at home together we share so many treasured moments. I am looking forward to the blessings and graces that we will share together in this great community of Upton Lake!
