Mrs. Elle Pastene

Hi there! My name is Elle Pastene, and I am so proud to be a 5th Grade Teacher at Donald Elementary! This will be my eighth year teaching and my fourth year with the amazing Donald family of staff, students, and their families. I will be teaching Writing and Social Studies this year! If your child has not gotten into their groove of writing yet or have a need for all things history, I hope to change that this year!


I grew up in Irving, Texas and met my husband in highschool. We will be celebrating our ninth wedding anniversary this December. I earned my Bachelor’s degree at Texas Woman’s University. I did my student teaching in Frisco ISD and then taught in that district for four years. During my fourth year in Frisco ISD, I had my son, Levi, and made the decision to stay home with him the following year. Just a short year later, the classroom was calling my name again and I came to Lewisville ISD as it was closer to home. Levi turned five this year and will be in kindergarten, such an exciting time! 


When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, cooking, and reading. We love taking trips- whether that means spending the day in Downtown Dallas or flying across the world to Italy! I am a big sports fan and am already counting the days down until preseason. Go Cowboys! 


This year is going to be amazing, I just know it. I can’t wait to get to know my new class soon!
