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, and upon graduating I returned to the Norris district for my first teaching position. The 2019-2020 school year will be my second year of teaching!
I live near the school with my husband of almost four years and our six month old Black Lab, Tank. My husband currently works as a local farmer, a Nebraska Army National Guard helicopter mechanic, and a volunteer fireman. On August 22nd, 2019, my husband and I are expecting the arrival of our first son! 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
