Ellyn Gasque teaches Grade 2 and 3 and multisensory math in the Key School and has been at Carolina Day since 2022.
After graduating from the College of Charleston with history and dance degrees, Ellyn moved to Charlotte, NC. She worked as the education coordinator at a local museum and taught dance classes. She realized her passion was teaching, so Ellyn attended the University of North Carolina Charlotte, obtaining her K-6 Graduate Certification in Teaching in 2015. Ellyn has taught kindergarten, first, and second grade since she began her teaching career and has completed her Orton-Gillingham classroom educator training.
Ellyn lives in Black Mountain with her husband and two animals. When she is not teaching, she enjoys reading, going on long walks, and eating lots of sweets. Ellyn strives to make all of her students feel welcomed within her classroom. She incorporates a motto in her classroom: “If one has courage, nothing can dim the light that shines within.” —Maya Angelou.
