My name is Melissa Theobald. Our family joined the ranks of Silver Sands students the very first year, when our son Troy was entering Kindergarten. He moved through the grades, followed by his brother Brigg and then his sister Skye. We absolutely loved being a part of that community until last summer - when we embarked on a new adventure and moved to Idaho. Although we were no longer local, I remained on the Board of Trustees to finish my term because I am passionate about education and the opportunities that charter schools like Silver Sands offer to students and families in Southern Nevada.
My professional background is in Accounting. I worked in the auditing department of several downtown Las Vegas casinos prior to graduating from UNLV with a Masters Degree in Accounting. In recent years, I have enjoyed working from home with the help of our 5 children and managing a small medical office with my husband, Roger. Our family loves camping, hiking, family game nights and have now added exploring the beautiful outdoors together. We miss our Silver Sands community and will always have a special place in our hearts for Montessori and the dedicated teachers who implemented those methods to help our children blossom.
