• About Me


    Hi Hippo Nation!

    My name is Rodney McElyea and I am the campus RN of Cottonwood Creek Elementary. I have over 15 years of nursing experience, specializing in critical care. Currently, I have my ADN and am pursuing my BSN degree, and am also proud to say I’m a United States Army veteran. In my spare time, my hobbies include watching football, camping, fishing, and music. I am happily married with 5 beautiful children. The general health and wellbeing of our youth has always been a passion of mine, and I am so thankful to bring that full circle with my career.
