Nicki, Wiggle Worms Teacher
Hello, my name is Nicki and I have been at The Learning Gardens since November 2023. I love working with children because they are fun, full of energy, curious, adventurous, and keep you on your toes with excitement. I believe children learn in many ways using all their senses and by example from their peers and teachers. Creativity is my favorite way to teach with lots of hands-on experiences. I am passionate about art, babies, being creative, having fun, and making sure each child has a good day and learns something new.
I have worked in the Early Childhood Education field on and off since 2018 but I have helped raise all of my nephews and nieces and now my great-nephews and nieces. I love working with kids of all ages. I am a Level 3 on the Wisconsin Registry
I have lived in Madison all my life except for a 6 month stint in Arlington TX. I am joyfully married and I have 2 adorable grown sons. In my spare time, I like to garden, work on craft projects, style hair, and spend time with my family. I love anything artistic, creative, and mind-expanding. I love writing, learning, and teaching.
My favorite quote is “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” by Albert Einstein.
