Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kayla Elliott

5th grade is such an exciting year and I look forward to working with each of you! My husband, Michael, stepson Eli, and two dogs live in Fort Mill! As a Fort Mill native, I have loved starting my own family in the town where I grew up! Eli will be a fourth grader in Ms. Howe's class!

In 2013, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop University (GO EAGLES!). During my senior year at Winthrop, I completed my internship at India Hook, and after graduating, joined the Pirate staff as a 4th grade teacher! This will be my 11th year teaching! I taught 4th grade for two years before moving to 5th grade.

When I am not at school, I love to cook, read, complete DIY projects, spend time with my family, and get outdoors with my dogs Haddie and Sullie. I am a big Carolina Panthers fan and look forward to a great football season! I find true joy in my job as an educator and can't wait for a fun filled school year!
