B.A. Psychology M.Ed. Curriculum and Instruction

Ms. Silva

I would first like to say how incredibly excited I am to be here at Horseshoe Trails Elementary teaching 4th grade.  I truly believe that this could quite possibly be my dream teaching job.  

I graduated from University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a B.A. in Psychology and continued on to earn my Master's of Ed. in Elementary Education.  I taught Kindergarten, Second Grade, and Third Grade for 15 years in Las Vegas, Nevada.  My husband's job took us out to Indiana for the last two years where I taught 3rd grade.  Thankfully, his job brought us back to the Southwest and warmer weather.  This is my third year at HTES teaching the English side of the 4th Grade Immersion team.

My husband and I have 4 children and 2 grandchildren.  We love being with our family, exploring the Southwest, and spending time at home with our fur babies.  

I look forward to getting to know everyone here at Horseshoe Trails Elementary.  If you see me wandering around, please stop and say hello!
