Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lizzie McLain
Hello! I'm Mrs. McLain. This is my fourth year of teaching, third year in ECISD, and second year teaching 5th Grade at Tradition Elementary. I grew up in Connecticut and earned my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from the University of Vermont with a minor in Special Education. I have taught in Vermont and Texas.
I am lucky to be able to work with Mrs. Alaniz this year and hope all my students know how fortunate they are to have TWO enthusiastic and lively teachers. I will teach Language Arts (ELAR) and Mrs. Alaniz will teach Math, Science, and Social Studies. I am a HUGE History and Science nerd, so my students should also know that Social Studies and Science will show up in our Reading and Writing work too!
I was married in October 2017--some students from John Glenn will still remember me as Miss Nutt! My husband and I decided to move to San Antonio from New England to be closer to his family, who are in the area. While I do miss New England in autumn, I love being down here in Texas and am constantly trying to persuade my family and friends to come join me down here! I'm not sure what I would do without HEB, Bill Miller's, or wildflowers in the Spring.
In my free time I love to read, write poetry, play video games, and knit! I am truly a nerd at heart and look forward to learning with (and from!) all my students this year. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions, comments and concerns.
