About Mrs. DeBoer
My name is Elyssa DeBoer and I am the 2nd grade Resource teacher at Norris Elementary School!
I was born and raised within the Norris community, and graduated from Norris in 2014. In 2018, I completed my Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education/Mild-Moderate Disabilities from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Throughout my undergraduate degree, I was fortunate to have many teaching experiences within local schools, and upon graduating I returned to the Norris district for my first teaching position. The 2021-2022 school year will be my fourth year of teaching!
I live near the school with my husband of six years, our two year old son, and our two year old Black Lab, Tank. My husband currently works for the Nebraska Army National Guard as a helicopter mechanic and is a volunteer first responder in the community. Although being a full time teacher, wife, and mom keeps me busy, in my spare time I love baking, writing, being outside, and spending time with my mom, dad, and two younger sisters.
My biggest goal in life is to make a lasting impact on generations of students to come, and to make the world a better place for a diverse group of learners.
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." -Albert Eintstein
