About Mrs. DeBoer
My name is Elyssa DeBoer and I am the 2nd grade Special Education 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, however, this will be my first teaching job as a certified teacher. I am so thrilled to be rejoining the Norris community, this time as a professional!
I live near the school with my husband of three years who is also from Norris. He currently works as a local farmer, a Nebraska Army National Guard helicopter mechanic, and a volunteer fireman. In my spare time I love baking, painting, volunteering with Wonderfully Made (a local non-profit organization), watching Marvel movies, 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
