Ms. Ellen Nasvik
I graduated from University of Iowa in 1990 with a degree in Art. In addition to teaching. I work as a concrete artist and my work includes the wolverine in front of Wood River High School, the mutton buster at the Hailey information building, and various sculptures in the skate park. In addition to concrete work, I have also worked for a variety of local non-profits doing social justice work. I worked eight years for the Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence helping to form the programs that exist today. In 2010 I took a job as an ENL paraprofessional at Alturas Elementary. I worked with kindergarten through fifth-grade helping support students of all ability levels with their academics. While working at Alturas I received my K-8 certification and found a place as part of the dual immersion team at Wood River Middle School. Seventh-grade social studies focuses on the Eastern Hemisphere of the world, and we have the privilege of introducing the students to Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, and Antartica. We will be studying societies from Mesopotamia to African tribes.
