Ellis was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. Ellis is one of the middle of six children. Ellis was blessed with the ability to understand math, and has a passion for math and for helping children on the subject. Ellis’s parents always taught him the value of education and it would be that value of education that would lead him to his aspirations of becoming a math teacher. Ellis attended Morris College located in Sumter, SC, where he received his Bachelors of Science Degree in Mathematics in May 2014. Ellis has spent the better part of his life up to this point working with children, from tutoring them to mentoring them with the belief that those who struggled in math could and would succeed if they were taught by a teacher with a combination of knowledge and understanding of the subject matter. Ellis plans to attend graduate school for education in the future to strengthen and continue to hone his teaching craft and will use his time with Blue Engine to continue to build on the experience he has obtained through his many internships and job so that he can become the best teacher he can be for his future students.
