Ms. Nicole Smitka

Hello! My name is Nicole Smitka, and I am a third-grade teacher at Carpenter Elementary.

I am an Ann Arbor native and a product of Ann Arbor Public Schools. I stayed local and went to the University of Michigan. GO BLUE! I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education degree with a major in Mathematics and a minor in Integrated Sciences. In addition, I completed the Master of Reading Program at Eastern Michigan University. This is my eighth year of teaching. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, fifth grade, Title 1 Math and Reading Intervention, and now third grade.

 Outside of teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends, reading, cooking, playing soccer and taking work out classes!
