Teri White is in her 33rd year as an education, working 20 years in Northern Nevada. She has worked in schools as a school administrator, at all three levels and has served as an Associate Superintendent of Educational Services in Lyon, a Superintendent in Mineral, the Human Resources Director in Douglas County and now the Superintendent in Douglas County. She serves as President of the Nevada Association of School Superintendents and as an appointed Member of the Teachers and Leaders Council.
She is proud to be an educator and believes that the work teachers engage in each day is work that provides students with the relationship. Knowledge, skills and abilities that will enable them to lead our tomorrow. Teachers not only teach content to young people, they help them to learn to communicate, collaborate, problem-solve and persevere. Educating is a demanding profession and one that is doing some great things in the State of Nevada. Those things are not always measured by or reflected well in national reports, but rather best viewed in our classrooms and reflected in the performance of our young people.
