Meet the Teacher
Hi! My name is Liz Ewing and I am so excited to be spending another year with CDS Kindergarten students! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your child’s teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures, and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know ALL about your child, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born and raised in Wichita and attended Goddard Schools since I was a Kindergartener myself! After that, I went to the University of Kansas (go Jayhawks!) where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and my Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction. It was during that time that I realized how much I loved working with primary age students – it’s amazing how much kiddos learn in these first few years of school!
I started my teaching career with Derby Public Schools in a first grade classroom before I moved back to Goddard to teach Kindergarten. This will be my seventh year teaching and I am excited to start another school year with your child. I love that I get to experience many “firsts” with them, but also know exactly what they need to learn to have a successful Kindergarten year and be ready for first grade.
I am married to my wonderful husband, Shane Ewing. You can check out his job every morning, as he is the co-anchor for Good Morning Kansas on KAKE news! In our spare time we love to try new restaurants, explore on our bikes, golf, travel, and enjoy each other’s company over a hot cup of coffee. We welcomed our first baby, Brynn, last October. She has definitely kept us busy and filled our hearts with love!
I am so thrilled your child is in my class this year! I just know we are going to have an amazing school year, full of learning and laughter. Always know I am available to answer any questions or concerns you may have!
