Hello! I am Nikki and I currently teach 4th grade at Jefferson Intermediate. I began teaching with the Pella CSD in the fall of 2016. I am an Iowa native who grew up on a farm in the southwest corner of the state. I attended Central College where I majored in Elementary Education. After graduation, I moved to North Carolina and then to Tennessee to be with my husband while he served in the Army. While in Tennessee, I taught 4th and 5th grades. We made the move back to Pella during the summer of 2016. I am so excited to be here and to be a part of such a great community. My husband, Billy, and I have two children-Halen and Elliana. In my free time, I enjoy reading, exercising, shopping, and spending lots of time outside.
