HI, I'm Ms. Nikki and I can't wait to create with you! I have always had a great love for anything to do with the arts, being creative and using my imagination!
As an art teacher for children, my goal remains to bring creativity to this platform in a fun, safe, and positive environment to aid in the growth of all children at home during this time of change!
My in-depth knowledge of accommodating different styles of learners and incorporating effective methods to meet student’s unique needs should make these classes easy breezy for all children alike!
I understand the importance of establishing a connection between the myself and the classroom, while fostering an exciting and engaging atmosphere to teach fundamental skills and now we will go on a virtual journey together.
