Ellen Gintautas » ELLEN GINTAUTAS


Hello there! My name is Mrs. Gintautas, better known as ‘Mrs. G’. Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am thrilled to be joining the LISD team as the K-2 Special Education Teacher at Hart Elementary. 


I grew up right outside of Minneapolis, MN and I love going back to visit with family and friends. I attended Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in early childhood special education and reading. 


Prior to working at Hart, I lived in Chicago where I taught Kindergarten for 3 years. Working with children is my passion and I feel so fortunate that I get to wake up each day and do something I love!  


I just got married this summer to my Husband, Arnas who is my college sweetheart. We have a French bulldog named Duke who has more energy than a room full of Kindergarteners! When I am not chasing him around the house I love spending time outdoors and cooking. We just moved to the Dallas area this August, and we are so excited to be here! 


I can’t wait to spend the year learning and growing with you!
