Elisa Selby

Hello, my name is Elisa Selby. I was born in Spokane, Washington but was raised mostly in Northwest Indiana between the two small towns of Union Mills and Wanatah. Growing up, we lived next door to my grandparent’s farm.

Being raised on a farm with my four siblings brought all sorts of adventures. We learned how to raise various animals including chickens, ducks, turkeys and cattle. We also had a pony, a dog and a vast assortment of barn cats. Since we lived several miles from the nearest grocery store, we always had a garden and grew all sorts of vegetables.

Every summer, I’d go with my family to the LaPorte County fair and I’d display my 4-H projects. I earned blue ribbons in baking, foods and sewing. Ask me about the number of butter cakes I made one year just to get my blue ribbon!

After graduating from South Central High School, I got married and had two children. Our children are now grown and the oldest one is married. My passion for working with children has not diminished from those days of old when I taught lessons to my siblings in the barn loft. I am excited about sharing my experience with the staff, parents and children at the Ben and Maxine Miller Child Development Laboratory School. I look forward to being a positive influence in their daily lives.
