Hello! I am Ms. Kelly. This will be my fourth year teaching first grade at Marion Earl. Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of being a teacher. I am so happy to be able to make my dreams come true, every day. I have a dog named Leila, and two bunnies! I am passionate about coffee, recycling, and positivity. You can find me admiring the plants out in the school garden.

Hello! I'm Miss Lee and this is my fifth year as a first grade teacher here at Marion Earl. I am originally from Bogota, Colombia, but have lived in Las Vegas most of my life. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a Minor in Human Development and Family Studies from University of Nevada, Reno and a Masters of Education in Early Childhood Education from UNLV. Go Pack!

 

 I am a big Disney and Star Wars fan, love spending time with family and friends, and really enjoy baking for others. Marion Earl has such an amazing community of students, parents, and staff, which makes it a joy to come to work everyday. I can't wait to get to know your kiddos more this school year.

Hello!  I am currently a first grade teacher at Marion Earl.  I have been teaching in Clark County for five years.  Prior to that, I was teaching in Reno, NV, for 10 years, which is where I am originally from.  I attended college in San Diego at San Diego State University which is where I also received my teaching license.  After being in San Diego for 8 years, I decided to move back to Nevada.  

 

I love being in Vegas, spending time with my family and friends and being outdoors!  I golf as much as possible, even in the heat! :)  I also am a huge sports fan: San Francisco Giants, Kansas City Chiefs, Michigan Wolverines, and of course, our VGK!

 

When I am not on course, I am usually facetiming or visiting my sweet nephew and twin nieces in Reno.  They fill my heart with so much love!

 

I really enjoy being at Marion Earl and I am excited for another great year!
