Michael Sankuer » Welcome!


My name is Mr. Michael Sankuer. I was born and raised right here in Las Vegas, NV. I attended Dondero and Frank Kim ES, CVT Gilbert 6th grade center, Kenny Guinn Jr. High, and Durango High School. I actually grew up playing baseball near here (at Cashman MS and Potosi park...over near Roundy ES). 

I attended the University of Nevada, Reno (go Wolf Pack!) where I majored in Elementary Education. After obtaining my degree, I taught HS English, Algebra, Journalism, and many many other subjects in a tiny rural Northern California town for 6 years. Wanting to live closer to my family, I returned home to Las Vegas and began teaching 3rd grade. I have been proud to call Wynn ES my home since August 2013. 

I am a huge fan of sports, movies, music, and reading. I love being a teacher. My dad was a teacher, as was my grandmother and my little sister, and I am thus also a fan of school…and of doing homework and reading out loud every night as well!!! :)
