Hillcrest Teachers
  • Yanna Elliot | Mathematics 

    Yanna Elliott, a full-time math teacher at Hillcrest Elementary School and an adjunct professor at Wayland Baptist University, was born and grew up in a large and ancient city called Xi’an, China. Yanna and her husband, John Elliott, moved to Plainview in 2003 and have enjoyed the small town life ever since. Prior to moving to the United States, Yanna taught in both elementary and secondary schools in China and Thailand. When not teaching, Yanna enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and watching her children grow. Teaching is her passion, and she believes that a good teacher demonstrates, but a great teacher inspires.
