"Think left and think right and think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!"

Meet Our Administration
It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the proud principal of Ira J. Earl Elementary School. The 2020-21 school year marks the 8th year here as the principal of the best school community. I am fortunate to be working with a dedicated staff, wonderful students, and devoted families.
Although I am not a Las Vegas native, I have been a resident and CCSD educator since August of 1996. My husband and I moved to Las Vegas from Wyoming in the middle of August and experienced our first HOT Vegas summer and one week later I began my career as a primary teacher at Helen Herr Elementary. For the next seventeen years, I taught first and second grades, served as a literacy specialist, and then was promoted to assistant principal at Harriet Treem Elementary School.
In addition, my husband has been a CCSD teacher for 22 years and we have raised two amazing kids. Our son graduated from Southeast Career and Technical Academy in 2016 and attends Colorado State University at Pueblo where he is pursuing a medical degree and is a goalkeeper on the soccer team. Our daughter is attending Southeast Career and Technical Academy where she is in the cosmetology program and plays on the volleyball team.
As the principal of Ira J Earl Elementary School, I will continue to work in collaboration with the staff, students, and families as we synergize to help students become lifelong learners who are college and career ready with the leadership skills to accomplish all of their goals.
