4th Grade Teacher
Extension 109

Proudly, I introduce myself as Mrs. Elaine Calouette a 4th grade teacher at Raymond Elementary School. I have taught at Raymond since 2001. I have taught 5-8th grade mathematics, Algebra, English, Careers and 4th grade.

I started my teaching career when I was in 3rd grade. I transformed a basement room into my own classroom. I attended Escanaba High School where I co-oped in the special education department and was given the opportunity to tutor students in mathematics. I continued my education at Northern Michigan University where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with Minors in both mathematics and English. I completed my student teaching in Warren Consolidated Schools in Warren, Michigan. After graduating in December of 1999, I took a contract substitute position with the Warren Consolidated School District. The following school year I took my first full time teaching position at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha teaching mathematics and English.

After moving to the Union Grove area, I happily accepted a 5th-6th mathematics position at Raymond. While at Raymond, I earned my Masters of Education in Technology from Lesley University. Raymond is a wonderful place to teach and it has become a second home for me. The families in this community are like no other. Over the years, I have watched many children grow into successful adults and I am very proud to say they were former students of mine. 

Family means everything to me. While at Raymond, my husband and I welcomed our 3 wonderful girls into the world. I have also been able to share my passion for basketball and running through coaching. In my free time, I like to travel with my husband and 3 daughters. We often take trips to see our extended family in Michigan or to our favorite warm place(s). I love to watch my daughters realize what the world has to offer as we travel and meet new people.
