Meet our Principal

Patricia Cobb


I was fortunate to be given three years to work with Deborah Howard, the remarkable former principal at Bruner Elementary, who has since retired. I feel 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 of twenty-two years and I met in choir at Bonanza High School. Our five beautiful children keep us busy all the time and we love it. I was born in Las Vegas and have lived here all of my life except for the one year we spent in the “boot heel” of Missouri. A lack of teaching jobs and family brought us back to Las Vegas. I love to read novels, film scripts, and watch movies.
