Nicole Laferriere

Fourth Grade

About Nicole

My name is Nicole Laferriere, and this is my first year teaching at Nasha Shkola. I am very excited to be teaching fourth grade here and to be part of such a wonderful community.  I grew up in Maple Grove, MN, where my family still lives today.  I attended St. Cloud State University for my degree in Elementary Education. This year in fourth grade we will be working on Reading and Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies, getting ready for Middle School. Students will also be learning to take more responsibility for their work and using collaboration in some of their school work. In the summer months, I give horseback riding lessons for the YMCA Camp Ihduhapi which is one of my passions and hobbies.

What I love about Nasha…

  • The community—tight connections between the staff and also with the students
  • Meeting the needs of every student to help them reach their full potential
  • Small class sizes allowing for getting to know your students on a deeper  level
  • The opportunity to learn more about the Russian culture
