Nicole Pelc Church
Nicole Pelc-Church (Visual and Applied Arts Education) has been teaching visual arts at various levels and schools since 2004. Her first five years of teaching were at a K-12 charter school here in Ann Arbor. After leaving this position to be a stay-at-home mom, she pursued her Master’s Degree in Studio Painting from Eastern Michigan University. She had also received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from EMU with a concentration in drawing and painting. After completing her Master’s degree, she taught various classes at Jackson and Schoolcraft Colleges. Then, as her youngest child prepared to go to Kindergarten, she felt it was time to return to the K-12 classroom. So, she began teaching elementary and middle school at Tecumseh Public Schools, where she would stay for three years. At the same time, living in Ann Arbor and having a strong desire to teach high school made the opportunity to teach at Skyline perfect. After only being here a short time, the possibilities and future as an Eagle seem bright. She has participated in many art shows receiving accolades, including the Greater Toledo Purchase Award from the Toledo Museum of Art. She loves spending time with family and friends and being near the great lakes, and she can often be found in an ice rink watching her husband and kids play hockey or playing hockey herself.
