Nicole Aldridge

Kalama (Kindergarten) Teacher (

I grew up in sunny Southern California. I spent my all of my summers and spare time on the beach.
I obtained my degree in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University.  Midway through my university education I took time off to serve as a full time missionary to the people in Spain.  It was this time where I gained my passion for Humanitarian Aid and Global Service Projects.
I was blessed to be able to marry my best friend.  This December we will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  We have 5 beautiful children.  Katie is a freshman at Brigham Young University. Emmy is a Junior at Hockinson High School.  Livy is a Sophomore at Hockinson High School.  Maddie is in 7th grade and Dallin is in 4th.
I love teaching Kindergarten!  My Philosophy on Education is that every child is lovable and capable and should be respected as such.  I also believe that education is a lifelong process and a beautiful journey that never ends!
