Mrs. Colleen Coale

Welcome to First Grade at Elk Ridge School! I am so excited for another great year with you and your little superhero! 

I began my teaching journey in 2011 when I graduated from West Chester University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I earned my Master's Degree in Education with a Reading Specialist Certification from West Chester University in 2015 while working in Delaware County schools. That same year I came to work at Elk Ridge and have loved being here ever since!

I absolutely love teaching first grade but when I am not at work, I spend time with my family. My husband and I live in West Grove with our daughter Maggie. We enjoy taking walks at the park, being outside on our ATVs or in our kayaks, and playing with our dog Shelby. 

As your teacher, I assure you that I will take the best possible care of your little one and will help them to become responsible, curious, and successful learners. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you and your family have a great year!
