Mrs. Audra Ellerbusch
Welcome to Vandagriff Elementary School!
I am truly excited to be your child’s teacher this year! The beginning of school is one of my favorite times of the year.
I just want to let you know that as I begin my 15th year of teaching, I still treasure the process of helping little ones learn as if it were my first year. I graduated from of The University of North Texas with a degree in early childhood education and immediately began my career as a kindergarten teacher at Ridglea Hills Elementary in Fort Worth ISD. I always tell people that kindergarten is where my heart is!
My family and I are active Bearcats and are very involved in the community. We have made Aledo our home for almost 17 years and can't imagine a better place for raising children. I have been married to Jason Ellerbusch, the love of my life, for 17 years and together we have 4 children- ALL boys!! Hershel is a junior in college. Jacob is in 7th grade at Aledo Middle School, Jackson is starting 5th grade and Zane is starting 2nd grade, both here at Vandagriff. When I'm not busy teaching and chasing after my boys, I love watching and playing sports myself.
Thank you in advance for your support and for helping to make this year a wonderful learning experience
