Hello, third grade families! My name is Ms. Deal and this is my third year teaching at Ellis Elementary. This year I will be teaching Reading, Writing and Social Studies. Ms. Marks will be teaching Math and Science.

I grew up in Prince William County and attended Prince William County Public Schools (Marshall Elementary, Parkside Middle, Osbourn Park High). I attended college at James Madison University and received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies with Minors in Elementary Education and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I also have my Master of Arts in Teaching degree from James Madison University. Go Dukes! 

I am beyond excited to be working with you and your child as we continue their journey on becoming lifelong learners. Please follow our class Twitter account at @MsDealsClass. Lastly, if you have not joined our class Bloomz account, please do so! Check your child's burgundy folder for the access code. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me at
