• Here's some information about Miss Black.


    My family:

    • My fiancée’s name is Craig and a previous football player at UNR. We are recently engaged and will be getting married in June of this year!
    • My son is 5 and starting Kindergarten this year!
    • My daughter is 3 and has a huge personality! 

    My background:

    This is my 12th year of teaching. I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade. I am teaching Math and Science. I taught in an private school setting for 2 years, elementary school setting for 6 years and in middle school for 5 years now. I decided to teach because I love building relationships with students and laughing with them. My favorite part is when I see students have those ‘ah-ha’ moments when their learning clicks.

    I was born in San Diego, California with my dad in the Navy. We moved to the Bay Area when I was in elementary school. Lastly, we moved to Reno as I was starting my junior year of high school.

    I attended UNR and achieved a Dual Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Special Education. I attended UNR for my Master’s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in STEM learning. I also have my EL endorsement for learners whose first language is not English.
