Ellie Wilson's primary teaching responsibilities are in curriculum and instruction and the preparation of future elementary school teachers. The majority of classes she teaches include field experience, and she enjoys working with teachers in the neighboring school systems. Wilson feels it is important to have active and ongoing partnerships with the schools and encourage lively and ongoing discussions with practicing teachers as we continually improve the education of future teachers. Wilson has also worked with several student groups including the Student Virginia Education Association (SVEA) and with three groups of the Jefferson Public Citizens program as their faculty advisor; the SVEA has received recognition as an outstanding chapter state-wide for several years.
Wilson has a long-standing interest in the history of teacher education and in 2006 published a book celebrating and commemorating the first 100 years of the School of Education at UVA.
