Theresa Elder

Mrs. Elder is beginning her 2nd year with Pinecrest St. Rose although it is her 8th year of teaching.  She was previously with the Clark County School District as a Special Education Assistant and long-term substitute while going through college.  After graduation and earning a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Phoenix in 2009, she taught first, third and fourth grades; she is now back to teaching first grade at Pinecrest and is looking forward to another wonderful year!


Mrs. Elder is married to a wonderful man named Jesse and they have two children- a beautiful daughter, Redle, and a handsome son, EJ.  “Home” for Mrs. Elder is Arizona, so whenever she and her family are on vacation, chances are you will find them in AZ where both extended families reside. 


When she is not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and dog, Prinze.  She also enjoys traveling, shopping, dancing and watching movies!
