Mrs. Mendoza - 2nd Grade Teacher

My name is Nicole Mendoza and I am a 2nd grade teacher at NOVA. I’ve taught 2nd grade at NOVA since the school started in 2020 and started teaching 2nd grade for the Nampa District in 2019. I started my teaching journey in 2016; previously I was in Arizona teaching 3rd and 4th grade. I live in Boise with my husband and 5 pets- 3 dogs and 2 cats!
 
In my free time I enjoy hiking and reading. Some fun facts about me are that I have a twin sister and I am 4’10”.
 
I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in counseling from Boise State in hopes to become an elementary school counselor; I am very passionate about social-emotional learning. I also hold high expectations for my students while providing a positive environment for them to take risks and learn from their mistakes. I am grateful the opportunity to work at NOVA and work alongside our incredible staff to teach our awesome students!
