For years she used her super powers to help all students tap into their own super powers despite their socioeconomic status. As Wonder Teacher Washington she wants all children to have access to quality educational experiences, that will help them make the world even more of a wonderful place. Elise wants children to experience a mind opened by WONDER rather than one that is closed by BELIEF!
