Hello friends, families and community members! I just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Nichole Morecraft. I would like to provide you with a little personal information about myself as well as my educational background. I have been blessed with being a kindergarten teacher here at Carmichaels Elementary Center for the past school year. Before being hired as a full time employee, I subbed in the district for two years. I immediately fell in love with the school and the community and knew that this is where I wanted to stay and continue my career. Before ending up at Carmichaels, I was the Autistic Support teacher for five years in the Burgettstown Area School District. I went to college at Bethany and currently hold a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education K-6 and a minor in Special Education N-12.
I did not grow up far from Bethany in fact I grew up just down the road in Avella. Where I attended primary school and high school. After college, later in life, I met my husband and ended up moving to Carmichaels. I live across from the school in my dream home with my husband of three years and our one year old daughter with another baby on the way. I have enjoyed living in the Carmichaels. It is such a friendly welcoming community that I have felt very at home in and will truly enjoy raising my children here.
As an educator I believe that kindergarten is the foundation for the rest of your child’s life. It is such an important part of their education. It is where the building blocks are laid for their future. I feel that your little one needs an education that meets all of their needs and I work hard in my classroom to address all of these needs as well as individual learning styles and challenges. I love seeing the progress they make from entering my room in September to leaving in June. They turn into young, confident learners that I am proud to say I was able to mold and guide in their first year of formal education. I hope this gave you a glimpse into myself as an educator, a mother and a community member. I look forward to having your student walk through my classroom door in September!
