Mitch Elovitz

Hi! Mitch Elovitz here! I’m super excited to be joining the Ida B. Wells community. I spent the last year as a Mental Health Therapist with the students of Benson Tech, which was incredibly enriching and rewarding. I am not a native Oregonian, but have lived here more than 30 years, so I  definitely have my webbed feet! I grew up in Connecticut, earning  my BS from Long Island University  and my Masters from Pacific University and earned my LPC designation in 2004.  I have worked over 30 years in the Mental Health field and am excited to be a part of the world of Special Education!

When I’m not working, I have many interests and hobbies. I’m very involved in various non-profit organizations, participate in a bowling league, a rock choir, and love spending as much time as possible with friends and family! I live in Sellwood with my wife, Nicole, of nearly 30 years and have a 23-year-old daughter, Maude!
