Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Elizabeth Sanden

This year begins my 4th year at Red Oak Elementary, and my 11th year here at Red Oak ISD.  I have worked in the Special Education field with students with Autism for 9 of those years, and they have been some of the most rewarding years of my life. 

I am happily married to Randy, my best friend and father to our three beautiful girls; Katelyn 16, Emma 12, and Olivia 6.  I have faith that our life experiences create the spiritual and intellectual beings we are today.  And I will forever be grateful for the love shared with my family and friends, as well as my career aspirations, and ultimately, the path that led me here this year to continue to work with each and every student I have.

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.
