Milligan College (Early Childhood Educ)
Hello! My name is Nicole and I am a certified teacher with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Milligan College. I have experience working with children in grades PreK-3rd grade and I currently teach kindergarten and am excellent in reading instruction! I also have experience in writing and math instruction in the early grades. I have had several professional learning experience to deepen my ability in these content areas and work well with young children learning to read. I have worked with young children for over ten years and in my current school system for the past five years. I am employed by a Title 1 school and work with many students who are below grade level to get them to where they should be academically to succeed. I also work with students in the summer who need extra instruction to insure they are ready for kindergarten and have worked with children from all academic levels using differentiated instructions techniques. If your child needs to learn to read or needs to deepen his/her reading abilities, I am the girl for you!
I am currently an elementary teacher that is teaching elementary math. I have experience with teaching math in grades PreK, K, 1st, and 3rd.
I currently teach kindergarten students in reading instruction. I work with students with varied levels of reading ability and put in place a variety of interventions based on the students' current needs. I attend monthly professional development trainings in reading and have had several opportunities to sit under highly experienced teachers to learn from their reading instruction techniques.
In teaching kindergarten, my students have to start at the basics to be able to read books throughout the year. I begin with teaching phonics including letter and sound recognition going into using picture clues and beginning sounds to identify unknown words.
As a certified teacher with teaching experience, I have obtained to skills throughout my education and teaching experience to use in spelling instruction as well as the experiences listed above.

Nicole worked great with my son. She kept me informed on every thing she was doing while working with my son. She figured out parts of the problems and worked to help fix them. She was very helpful. Glad I found her and will be using her again if needed. Highly recommend her.
In my experience with Kingsport City Schools, our curriculum relies on Common Core standards, as well as state standards. I have prepared lessons based solely on the common core standards during my education at Milligan College, student teaching, and presently in my current teaching role. I am experienced with Common Core math, as well.
I am currently a certified teacher at an elementary school in Kingsport. I have had student teaching experiences in two other Kingsport schools and have taught elementary math, reading, and social studies.
As a kindergarten teacher, I start at the basics in order to get my students to reading level by the end of each grading period. I start with letter identification, move on to letter/sound recognition, to beginning sounds in words, then to ending sounds, etc. I also teach students in reading instruction to use picture clues and beginning sounds in order to identify unknown words. These skills are then transferred to writing instruction as students are expected to use their knowledge of letter ID and letter/sound recognition in order to produce beginning sounds of words and then continue to move on to ending sounds, medial sounds, sight words, etc.
I am a certified teacher with an education degree from Milligan College where I took courses specialized in reading instruction including Children's Literature, Literacy Development, and Reading Processes and Assessment. Of course, my program also included instruction on Teaching Methods and ways to creatively teach subjects and differentiate instruction.
I am currently a teacher with Kingsport City Schools where I teach reading and phonics and participate in monthly professional development to improve my reading instruction. I have had several experiences, also, to sit under veteran teachers to learn from their reading instruction. I have worked with remedial students in upper grades to get them closer to grade level reading and have taught young students the foundations of literacy.
