I am Elaine

grew up I grew up in Brown City, Mich., and graduated
from Brown City High School and later graduated from Madonna University.

high school I was going through a lot with my Mom's sickness and death. School became my escape from the stress at
home and motivated me to achieve great things and overcome my obstacles. One
teacher in particular made herself aware of my situation and was a huge support

become a teacher.
My favorite memory from my own days in school is when when I competed in a "Mock Rock" in front of
the school and our group "rocked it.”
In my spare time I read, go for a
walk, spend time with friends, watch movies and listen to music.
My favorite book is Let the Great

of various characters whose stories converge while they watch the tight rope
