1st Grade

Meet the Teacher

My name is Nicole Kaiser, and this is my fourth-year teaching first grade at St. John the Baptist Catholic School. have spent the last 16 years working with children in a variety of educational, early literacy and childcare settings. I received my bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Arizona, and I received my master’s degree in teaching from Santa Clara University. 
Working with children has always been a passion of mine and I am so happy to continue doing what I love. I believe that children learn best through hands-on experiences and exploring new ideas, so I will always try to incorporate engaging activities into our daily learning. I consider myself to be a life-long learner and hope to instill a love of learning in your child throughout the year. I believe that there is always something new to learn and I love to explore new concepts and ideas. 
I love animals, especially cats and elephants, and I love all things Disney. In my free time I enjoy hiking, baking, cooking, crafting and spending time with my friends and family.
