Ellissa Keith

English Teacher

“Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” – Mathew 10:39


Miss Keith grew up in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York and moved to the New Jersey area in 2011 after completing her undergraduate and graduate English degrees at Liberty University.

Since then, she has been actively involved in Hawthorne Gospel’s senior high youth group ministry. Through high school ministry and discipleship, she came to realize her sincere desire to help teenagers develop a genuine, growing relationship with Christ and equip them, through teaching, to communicate God’s truth to those around them with compassion and confidence.

Ms. Keith has been teaching high school English since 2015 and is excited to be serving the Lord at Hawthorne Christian Academy. She started here in 2017.
