Hello!  My name is Joy Holladay and I am honored to be teaching this year’s fabulous group of third grade students!  After leaving college in Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s degree in education, I earned my Master’s degree here in Nevada.  I have been teaching for twenty years now and am proud to be a Marion Earl Eagle!  When not in school, I enjoy cozying up with a cool Starbucks, a creamy peanut butter cup, and a good graphic novel.  I look forward to working together to educate the bright minds of the future!

Hola! I am Mr. Valdez! I am the Assistant P.E. teacher at Marion Earl. This is my 3rd year as an Eagle. I was born in Las Vegas. But I grew up in the small town of Laughlin, Nevada. I graduated from UNLV with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. I love to play sports, and I have a strong passion for anything sports-related. I love exercising and staying active. My favorite teams are the Los Angeles Lakers and the Vegas Golden Knights. I am Bilingual and speak fluent English and Spanish. So if you ever need a translator, I am your guy!  I am excited to teach everyone about sports and staying active! See you out on the Field!

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I graduated from Long Beach State with a degree in human development. I received my master’s in education from Walden University. I have been teaching for 20 years and love working with children. I have an amazing daughter, who is now in fifth grade. We love to visit CA to spend time with our family, friends, and go to the beach. When we are here in Vegas, we love going hiking in Mount Charleston and Red Rock Canyon.
