Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Nicole Smitka. I am an Ann Arbor native and a product of Ann Arbor Public Schools. I stayed local and completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan. GO BLUE! I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education with a major in Mathematics and a minor in Integrated Sciences. Later, I completed the Master of Reading Program at Eastern Michigan University. This will be my ninth year of teaching. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, fifth grade, 2-5 grade Title 1 Intervention, and most recently third grade.
Outside of teaching, I love spending time with my family, friends, and cat, Levi. I am looking forward to getting a puppy later this month. I also enjoy reading, cooking, playing soccer, and taking fitness classes!
Looking forward to a great school year! I can't wait to meet everyone!
