Staff Profile


Hello! My name is Elisabeth Grams and I am a kindergarten teacher at West Salem Elementary School. I grew up on a farm in Coon Valley, WI, and attended Viterbo University where I received my Elementary Education degree with a minor in Early Childhood Education. While at Viterbo, I was fortunate to student teach at WSES. I knew that if I ever had the opportunity to work in this wonderful district, I would! I also worked for ten summers at the Swarthout Pool as a lifeguard, swimming teacher, and swim team coach, making me fall in love with the community. 

After graduating in 2011, I taught 3K/4K for the Aquinas School District and then accepted a long-term substitute position in 2012 at Lawrence-Lawson in Sparta, WI, where I stayed for 4 years. An opportunity opened in West Salem for a teaching position, and as much as I loved my friends in Sparta, I was thrilled to take the opportunity to teach again at West Salem! It truly is a one-of-a-kind district and community, and I am so proud to be part of it.

I live on the south side of La Crosse with my husband (Bryce), my two boys (Ethan and Aiden), my little dog (Lily), my big dog (Auggie), and my cat (Leo). We are a very active family and love to be outside playing at as many parks as we can get to in a day, going for long walks, riding our bikes to Riverside Park for a stop at the Friendship Garden (and maybe a little ice cream from The Pearl!), playing with our neighbors, swimming, and finding as many adventures as possible in our beautiful community!

I look forward to a wonderful school year and making great memories of teaching our students at WSES!
