Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Elizabeth Sanden

This year begins my 7th year at Red Oak Elementary, and my 13th year here at Red Oak ISD.  I have worked in the Special Education field with students with Autism for 12 of those years, and they have been some of the most rewarding years of my life. 

I am a proud mother of 3 beautiful girls; Katelyn 19, Emma 15, and Olivia 9.  I have raised all 3 of them here in Red Oak, and have always loved the close-knit family feeling that we have here in Red Oak.

I truly love what I do, as I find it emotionally and spiritually fulfilling.  We are all created in a way that makes us each different and unique.  And just as I feel that I am here to help teach each student I work with grow to their fullest potential academically and social-emotionally; I am also here to learn and grow from each and every one of them.  Every year, I learn how to become a better teacher and a better human being; which would not be possible without the experiences I have had as a teacher of the most amazingly, beautiful population ever created.
