Ellis Enlow is the founding Pre-K teacher and Mindfulness Facilitator. Ellis developed and implemented our Pre-K program in 2003, the same year her daughter graduated from Echo Horizon. In addition to teaching preschool in the West Los Angeles area, she has also served as a preschool educational director. She received an M.A. from Pacific Oaks College in Human Development, with a specialization in Early Childhood Education; a J.D. from Northeastern University Law School in Boston; and a B.A. from Pennsylvania State University in Sociology. Ellis has trained extensively to bring mindfulness practices to children and in 2017 she completed a year-long Training in Mindfulness Facilitation through UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC). Ellis enjoys reading and yoga. She has two adult children, and a sweet, if sassy, rescue dog. Ellis used to be a competitive figure skater (way) back in the day. One of her greatest joys is learning from her students. They may only be four or five years old, but they are often profound. She believes that one reason Echo Horizon is such a special place is that our community is permeated with love.
