Hi! I am Nicole Throckmorton, aka Ms. T! My teaching career began in 2018 after receiving my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and certifications to teach Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education from Northwest Missouri State University. My first year at KCIA I was an ELL Specialist and worked with kindergarten and 1st grade scholars. I spent the next two years as a third grade classroom teacher. I am very excited to be on the first grade team this year co-teaching with Mrs. Mays! I am currently finishing up my Master’s from Missouri Western State University in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. In my free time enjoy traveling, riding my bike, and spending time with my friends and family!
