Hello to all! My name is Elena Fishburne and I am extremely excited about being a Cardinal! I recently completed my 21st year of teaching; 11 years at the middle school level and 10 years at the elementary school level. I was adopted from Romania and grew up in Columbia, SC. I attended Richland 2, K-12, schools and obtained my undergraduate and graduate degrees from USC-Columbia. My little family consists of a beautiful daughter, Emily, who is in the 7th grade and a fun-loving, rambunctious Maltese puppy named Lilly. I enjoy the outdoors, exercising, playing tennis, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends.
