Hello! My name is Nicole Wagner and I am originally from Columbus, Ohio. I just moved to Denver this summer and could not be more excited to be in Colorado and to be teaching at Smith! I have taught third grade the past 2 years in Ohio, as well as subbed throughout Elementary schools. I graduated from Miami University (OH) in 2014 with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. During my time at Miami I was also on the swim team, which taught me to honor and value hard work, dedication, and a love for what I do. I am constantly trying to instill these values into my students to help them grow!
When I'm not at school I love being active and doing anything that involves being outside! I love to hike, paddle board, camp, and workout outside as much as I can. Being from Ohio, I am very excited to have the mountains as my playground. I also enjoy cooking (as well as eating) and exploring new places with my friends.
I am so excited to be a part of the Smith team!
