Ms. Nicole, December 2019 Teacher of the MonthOur teachers play such a significant role in our lives and we are thanks for all the day every single day! Each day our teachers are helping children foster their love for reading, writing and learning. Each classroom opens a world of possibilities and makes learning fun!

The process of choosing just one teacher each month is beyond difficult, but we are pleased to announce that our 2019 December National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Nicole of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Leawood, KS!

Ms. Nicole has been with LSP since August but it seems so much longer! She is our Assistant Pre-K Teacher and has done an amazing job. Everyone loves Ms. Nicole and everything she does for her classroom. She is very artistic and creative. Ms. Nicole always has a smile on her face and is willing to help wherever she is needed. We are very appreciative that she is part of our team at LSP Leawood.

Here is some fun information about her and what makes her such a standout!

What age group do you teach?
Pre-kindergarten

What is the name of your classroom?
La La Land

What do you love most about the age group you teach?
I really get to connect with each child in my classroom. The children are always coming up with creative things I would’ve never thought of. At the end of each day, I’m learning something new from each of them.

What is your favorite curriculum project you’ve ever done in your classroom?
I love the project where we got to make ornaments.

What do you enjoy most about working for LSP?
LSP is like a family to me, all the staff makes me feel like home.

Who and/or what inspires you?
A lot of people inspire me every day, but I’d have to say my Mom inspires me the most.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love creating art whether it’s painting or sketching.

Tell us one special fact about yourself that no one would expect.
I’m a really outgoing person now, but I used to be very shy struggling with anxiety.
