My name is Abby Elam. I am thrilled to be teaching first grade at Dwight Elementary. I grew up in Lamar, Arkansas. In 2019, I graduated from Arkansas Tech University and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I have a dog named Tobi who has more energy than a room full of first graders! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. It is my mission to instill a love for learning in all of my students.
