Jefferson Elementary | Special Education
My name is Joyce Delgado. I am from North Platte, Nebraska and graduated from North Platte High School. After high school I went to Mid Plains Community College where I received my Associate of Arts and associate of General Studies. I furthered my education and graduated from Kearney State College with my Bachelors in the areas of Elementary Education K-6, Specific Learning Disabilities K-5, and Mild/ Moderate K-12. I received my Masters of Curriculum and Instruction from Doane State College.
I am married to Danny Delgado. He is retired now, but finished his working career as an locomotive engineer on the Union Pacific Railroad. We have 4 grown children-3 daughters and one son. They have given us 16 grandchildren-12 grandsons and 4 granddaughters. We try to see them as often as possible.
I currently teach as one of the Resource teachers at Jefferson Elementary School. I have taught in the North Platte School system for 11 years. Prior to teaching at Jefferson, I taught at Washington Elementary School in North Platte. Prior to teaching in North Platte I taught at Maxwell Public School for 12 years and at Sutherland Public School for 7 years.
As a Resource Teacher, I strongly believe that all children can learn. I strive to get to know each student so that I can build a strong relationship with them and to give them the tools that they need in order to become a successful member of society. I believe that all students can and will achieve, it is my job as a teacher to help them become as successful as they can.
