Elisa Roberts is a graduate of Austin Peay State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education. While continuing graduate studies in education at Covenant Seminary in St. Louis, she found her passion in teaching middle schoolers at Twin Oaks Christian School. Elisa has been teaching since 2004, including an overseas stint of three years at the American School in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Her most recent educational adventure has been teaching ESL students at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee. Elisa is happily married to Colin Roberts (son of first-grade teacher Karen Roberts), and they have two children, Dunnivan and Joey Kate, both of whom will attend River’s Edge. After 16 years of being away from home, she is so thankful that God has brought them back here to Knoxville to raise their family among close friends and family. “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14–a verse to encourage all my future middle schoolers and parents!
