    • Kindergarten

    This will be my thirteenth year teaching. I graduated from UNR with a dual degree in Elementary and Special Education. I also hold an Early Childhood Special Education endorsement. I have taught ECSE, K-2 resource, and 2nd grade.

    I never win pie eating contests because they make me giggle. My first question when planning a visit somewhere is, "Do they have a museum?" I am an awful singer, but I don't let that keep me from singing!


  • Mrs. Loop

    • 1st grade

    This will be my 20th year teaching and my 6th year teaching first grade at Oasis Academy. I grew up here in Fallon and graduated from Churchill County School District. I attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education in December 1995. I earned my Master's degree in Literacy Studies and a Reading Specialist endorsement from the University of Nevada, Reno in December 2004. I am currently working towards earning my National Board Certification in Literacy. I have had experience teaching kindergarten, first, third, and fourth grade. I have also had experience with teaching reading as a Project LIFE (Literacy Intervention For Excellence) teacher, as a Nevada Reading Excellence Act Literacy Specialist, and I have been trained as an ExLL Literacy Coach. Teaching is my passion and I truly enjoy teaching children how to read.

    • 2nd grade

    Welcome to Oasis Academy! My name is Shannon (Mandic) Garcia. I'm excited to be a member of the Oasis Academy Team. This is my 12th year of teaching in Fallon! 10 years spent teaching 1st grade and this is my 2nd year of teaching math to 1st and 2nd graders. The remainder of my afternoon is spent with my second grade class. I moved to Fallon sight un-seen from Butte, Montana...and what a shocker! I was interviewed and hired by two of my favorite people; Mrs. Marsh and Mrs. Rowlett! We continue to work together at OA and spend time together. I enjoy spending time with my three boys: Lewis, Jorge and Antonio! They keep me very busy and we are also active members of the community of Fallon.
