Dr. Ellis


Dr. Robert Ellis is a new Algebra 1 teacher at WHS in his 21st year of teaching.

After teaching at Life School Waxahachie, Ellis wanted a change of pace.

“I taught at Life School for 14 years,” said Ellis. “I wanted to move up in classification.”

Ellis previously coached golf at Life School, leading the team to the 4A state championship.

“I’m hoping to coach in a higher classification and face harder competition,” said Ellis.

Before teaching, Ellis worked as a licensed chiropractor.

“There were some good and bad things about it,” said Ellis. “At the time though, it was a stigmatized profession, and I didn’t like the insurance companies.”

Outside of school, Ellis enjoys cooking and golf.
