Meet our Principal

Meet our Principal

Patricia Cobb


Hello Darnell families! My name is Patricia Cobb, and I am so excited to be working here at Darnell as the principal!

I was fortunate to be given three years to work with Deborah Howard, the remarkable former principal at Bruner Elementary, who has since retired. Her kind and generous mentorship style prepared me to serve as Darnell Elementary School’s principal. All of my undergraduate and graduates studies were accomplished at UNLV including a Bachelors of Science in Education and Masters degrees in Curriculum and Instruction as well as Administrative Leadership.

“High school sweethearts,” my husband and I met in choir at Bonanza High School. Our five beautiful children keep us busy all the time and we love it. We have an amazing Saint Bernard, a few fish, and a hedgehog to keep us extra busy. I was born in Las Vegas and have lived here all of my life except for the one year we spent in the “bootheel” of Missouri. A lack of teaching jobs and family brought us back to Las Vegas. I love to read novels and film scripts, cross-stitch, and watch movies.  


As always, please contact me if I can help you or your child in anyway.
