• !Hola!  My name is señora Lucy Elkin and I will be teaching World Languages, Spanish 1A, Spanish 1B and Life Readiness this year.  This will be my 9th year teaching Spanish at Gentry!

    I am originally from California and moved to Missouri 29 years ago.  I received my bachelor’s degree in Foreign Language Education with an emphasis in Spanish from the University of Missouri and a Master of Arts in Education from Lindenwood University.  I have taught all levels of Spanish for the past 19 years, I have participated in various Multicultural school programs and I have had the honor of traveling with students to various Spanish-speaking countries, such as Costa Rica and Spain as well as Portugal, France and China. 

    I am married to Skip Elkin and we have two beautiful daughters, Kathryn and Alex.  We also have four amazing grandchildren that we adore!  In my spare time I enjoy watching Spanish movies and series as well as home decorating and travel shows.  I also enjoy canoeing, traveling and spending time at the lake with my family.
