Teacher, Level 2
My name is Barbara Nachtsheim. I received my Bachelors of Science from the University of Nevada in Fitness Management with a minor in Nutrition. In the fall of 1998 I received my teaching certificate from Sierra Nevada College. My experience since then has included acting as a Reading Resource teacher and teaching fourth grade in the Reno Sparks area.
I then taught Science, Algebra, and Health at Desert Ridge Middle School in Albuquerque, New Mexico for five years. During my time at Desert Ridge, I implemented a School District wide Healthy School Policy, providing healthier school lunches for the students of the district. I served on the Student Assistant Team Board that helped the teachers, students, and parents make instructional modifications for the student’s success in school.
After moving back to Reno, I took time off to raise my children, staying involved with their education by volunteering in the classroom and serving in executive positions on the Parent Faculty Association at their school. I am very excited to be helping your children.
