Dana Ellis

English Language Arts, Social Studies

After graduating from the University of Calgary in 1997 with degrees in Psychology and Education, Dana Ellis began teaching elementary and junior high in the Grande Prairie area. When she returned to Calgary a few years later, she completed a Business Diploma in Marketing at SAIT. The opportunity to oversee and help build the newly formed Edge Dance Program came about in 2003, when she embraced the opportunity to combine her background in dance and theatre with her love of being in the classroom. Dana brings her passion for reading and writing to her students, sometimes with a little song & dance thrown in to keep everyone on their toes. This is Dana’s 20th year at Edge School and 24th year of teaching.
