About Me

I have been married to the lovely Mrs. Elliott for 21 years. I'm also the proud Dad of Sara and Nathan. This is my 23nd year teaching and 2018-'19 marks my 19th year at Oak Grove! I enjoy spending time with my family, playing sports (not necessarily well), and reading books. I also like to cook (taking my inspiration from Chef Short) and I've never said no to a chocolate chip cookie.

I'm blessed!

The scholars of Room 6 make coming to school fun! I am impressed with my students' kind hearts, enthusiasm for learning, talents, and abilities. I commend them for pursuing excellence, putting up with daily quotas of my corny jokes, and reserving a special place in their hearts for the LA Kings! (Go Kings Go!)

Attributes of A Scholar!

Academic Humility - True Scholars know that there is always more to learn.

Curiosity - Scholars are always questioning and researching new topics.

Tools - Scholars have materials ready and are mentally prepared for school each day.

Multiple Perspectives - Scholars try to see how others see things and put themselves in other people's shoes.

Save - Scholars save ideas, thoughts, and reflections to use later.

Ponder – Hmmm! Scholars take the time to let thoughts develop.

Exercise Intellect - Scholars challenge their minds and put in the extra effort.

Resources - Scholars use many resources to help them learn, such as dictionaries, thesauruses, encyclopedias, books, magazines, and the Internet.

Vision/Goals - Scholars set goals and strive to reach them. They understand that if there is no path, there is no vision.

Take Risks - Scholars are not afraid to put themselves out there in the spirit of learning.

Participate - Scholars are always interested in participating in classroom discussions and activities.

Perseverance - Scholars keep trying and don't give up. Having a good attitude makes all the difference.

Root for the LA Kings! Scholars recognize the greatness of the Kings and are inspired by the skill, chemistry, and leadership the team showcases.

Birthday Treat Policy


Oak Grove Staff, in support of the Capistrano Unified School District’s Wellness Policy (BP 5030), has made a nutrition resolution.  We feel it is important that we have a unified K-5 policy that all Oak Grove personnel, as well as our parents and community members, support in promoting good health. 

Since our goal is to provide the best educational experience and environment for learning to all children in the classroom, Oak Grove is asking for your support to change the tradition of allowing junk food as a snack, reward, celebration or treat.  Parents can assist by no longer providing or offering junk food as a treat in recognition/celebration of their child's birthday in the classroom.  

Please know that parents are not obligated send anything for birthday but we are requesting that NO JUNK FOOD is sent for birthday celebrations.  Some creative ideas for parents to use in place of the typical donuts, cookies, cupcakes, or candy to recognize their child's special day are listed below:

Erasers, pencils, stencils, rulers, donation of a Celebration Book selected by the student or a special book for the class library, board games, balls, jump ropes, etc. 

Have You Filled Someone's Starbucket?!

Share some love, extend some kindness, bless a friend, and fill someone's 'starbucket!'

Acts of caring can come in a variety of forms and can feature an assortment of sizes: tall, grande, and venti!

Embrace the opportunities that life has to offer. Seek to be a 'character barista'—looking to fill individual/collective buckets throughout the day!

Deep Thoughts...

The memories of my family outings are still a source of strength to me. I remember we'd all pile into the car - I forget what kind it was - and drive and drive. I'm not sure where we'd go, but I think there were some trees there. The smell of something was strong in the air as we played whatever sport we played. I remember a bigger, older guy we called "Dad." We'd eat some stuff, or not, and I then I think we went home. I guess some things never leave you.

The Elliott Family!

    Name That 80's Band

    And I ran, I ran so far away.
    I just ran, I ran all night and day.
    I couldn't get away.


    Send Mr. E an e-mail! If you attribute the correct band to the above lyrics, your child (if referenced in the e-mail) will win a treat. (The treat will be of the healthy variety so as to meet District Guidelines.)

    Magnetism, as you recall from physics class, is a powerful force that causes certain items to be attracted to refrigerators.
