ELYSSA CONNOLLY

ELYSSA CONNOLLY

Grade 5 Science and Social Studies, Co-Primary Houseparent

Elyssa graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2020 with a major in Geology and minors in Religious Studies and Public Health. Her love for the Adirondacks stemmed from weekends at her grandparents’ camp in Bolton Landing, Lake George. Elyssa’s geology degree allowed her to study throughout the Adirondacks, Ottawa, New York City, Iceland, Denmark, and Ireland. Through a grant, she was able to travel to County Clare in Ireland to study the geomorphology of the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. She also holds a deep passion for storytelling, playing guitar, photography, and stargazing.
