Ms. Nicole Chesney

Hi there! My name is Nicole Chesney, and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten again at Evergreen Mill this year!! Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, and I am elated that I am continuing to make my dream a reality. I completed a 5-year Masters program at James Madison University (Go Dukes!), where I received my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies in 2018 and my Master of Arts in Teaching in 2019. When I’m not in school, I’m painting, hiking, or traveling to visit family members across the world! Although this year may look a little different, we have been preparing for an incredible year of fun learning ahead. Go Pythons!

One of the greatest joys in my life is building relationships with children to help them grow into kind and empathetic citizens. My goal is to enable my students to approach others with an open mind, to lay the foundation for each young person to learn tolerance towards differences, and to build on their courage to stand up for what’s right. I believe that in order to elicit positive change in our world we must start with our future--one generation, one child at a time. Let’s BE the change!
