I loved Ellie's collaborative style. If someone suggested a different way of making/doing something she would say, "let's try it." She is a great leader. You can tell she knows her stuff but never used that to act above anyone or came across as a, "know it all." She made learning fun. She made everyone's needs important, and gave everyone some 1 on 1 time.
