Welcome to our Classroom Website
    My name is Nora Basara and I'm so excited to be your child's teacher! I'm a graduate of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Elementary Education. This year will be my 7th year of teaching, 6 of those years being at Sand Creek. I have spent all my years teaching 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. I'm very much looking forward to this year with fifth grade! 
    Outside of school, I love spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I have two young daughters and a golden retriever. I enjoy sharing lots of stories about them. I also love to teach and participate in group fitness classes. 
    My goal for each student this year is to feel supported and encouraged in their learning, believe in their ability to challenge themselves, and have fun each day with their friends and peers. Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
