Hi there! My name is Nicole Chesney, and I am so excited to join the Evergreen Mill Kindergarten community this year!! Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, and I am elated that I am finally making 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! I look forward to 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 heart and an open mind, and to lay the foundation for each young person to learn tolerance towards differences. 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.
