Hi! My name is Victoria Girardin and I teach second grade here at Marion Earl Elementary School. I was born and raised in New York City and received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from St. John’s University. Three years ago, I packed everything I owned into my car and drove more than 2,500 miles to Las Vegas, where I now live with my fiancé, Nick, and our menagerie of pets. In my spare time, you’ll typically find me curled up on the couch drawing, enjoying reruns of Survivor or Doctor Who, or hunched over a book (I’m currently working towards a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction). I became a teacher because I love to learn and want to dedicate my career to guiding your little ones as they grow and experience our incredible world. I am passionate about education and consider it the greatest honor to work alongside your children!
