Hi, I’m 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. This is my fifth year at KCIA. During my time at KCIA I have been an ELL Specialist, 3rd Grade Teacher, 1st Grade Teacher, and Elementary Special Education Teacher. I just recently finished my Master’s Degree from Missouri Western State University in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. In my free time I enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors with my fiancé, family, friends, and dog! Fun fact- I found my dog, Calvin, outside KCIA as a stray. He’s the best boy!
