Welcome Nicol Howald!


Would I want to be a student in my classroom?  That question is always in the back of my mind when planning lessons and creating activities. With a total of 20 years of teaching experience in 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, as well as a few years as a Core Content Coach, I have seen many educational trends come and go.  My goal is to use best practices, and fun educational tools, to make school a place students look forward to attending each and every day.


When visiting our classroom, you may find us coding with Sphero, engaged in spirited discussions through Socratic Seminars, or racing the clock in a BreakoutEdu session.  We connect with classes around the world through Mystery Skypes and during Genius Hour.  


I want my students to become part of a global society and I want to provide them with communication and cooperation skills that will help them become successful in all areas of their lives.


When I’m not working, you can find me playing games with my family, reading, following educational topics on social media, or traveling.
