Mrs. Elisa Nash
Kindergarten Team Leader
Hi! My name is Elisa Nash! I will be your child’s Kindergarten-grade teacher for the 2022-2023 school year! This is my 8th year teaching at Plano ISD, and I am excited to make this my best year! I was born and raised in Houston, TX, and moved to Dallas, TX after graduating from Stephen F. Austin State University. I was offered my first teaching position and I married my college sweetheart all in the same year. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband Travis, our daughter, and our small dog. I love working out, painting, shopping, and spending time with family and friends.
