2020 New Teacher of the Year:
Ms. Jordan Ellico
Every year Vegas3DKids LLC chooses an outstanding incoming teacher to support throughout the new school year. We begin by donating a set of 3D Printed Teacher Passes and other fun 3D Printed items for the new teacher's classroom. Next, we also make a donation to their Amazon "Wish List". Last, we facilitate a "GoFundMe" fundraiser to help raise money for the new educator. We created this award because we know that starting a new career in teaching is expensive. As a former educator, I spent well over $2000 in my first year alone. Congratulations to Jordan!

All About Ms. Ellico- Wynn Elementary School- Third Grade Teacher
I am a product of the Clark County School District and graduated from Western High School in 2009. I had so many teachers, from elementary to high school, that have changed my life. My journey in education began in 2015 when I worked for Capital One. We partnered with Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada to teach low income schools about finances and their communities. After being placed in a third grade classroom, I fell in love with everything teaching had to offer. I continued to volunteer and eventually decided that teaching was where my heart is at. In late 2015, I enrolled at Western Governors University in their Interdisciplinary Studies program. I soon left my job at Capital One to pursue my career in the Clark County School District at Elaine Wynn Elementary School. I have been there for 4 years as support staff working in Resource, the library, and the front office. For the 2020-2021 school year, I will be going into my first year as a teacher in third grade! I am so excited to begin my journey as a teacher and cannot wait to see what the future holds. Most importantly, though, I get the opportunity to change lives!
