Katie Phifer » Welcome!


Hi, I’m Mrs. Phifer.  I am a product of Las Vegas education.  I went to Doris Hancock Elementary, Cashman Middle School, and Bonanza High School.  I attended University of Nevada, Reno for a degree in English and Political Science.  

This is my second year at Elaine Wynn, and I love teaching here.  The teachers are truly amazing and are led by an incredible administration.  My philosophy of teaching:  Education is in the hands of us all, but teachers can change the lives of students by having a classroom culture that enables learning, embeds social responsibility and embraces cultural differences. 

Besides being a teacher in the classroom, I teach little ones to swim at the community pool Desert Breeze.  I coach for the swim team Sandpipers of Nevada. I’ve been coaching swimming for nearly twenty years.
