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.
