• Meet Mrs. Pastrana
  • My name is Nancy Pastrana. I am a wife and mother of two, as well as a teacher. I have taught for over thirty years and have been married for more. I have two daughters both of whom are grown and creating lives for themselves. I am very proud of both of them. 

    I have been teaching at Opstad since the day it opened!  Throughout my career, I have taught predominantly kindergarten, first and second grade. However, first grade has always been first in my heart. I love the excitement and enthusiasm of first graders. It is a pleasure to go to work every day!

    Growing up I never intended to be a teacher. I never would have guessed that it would become my passion and continue for over 30 years.
    Glad to meet you.
