Hello! My name is Nicole McKee and I am the A track PM kindergarten teacher atRonald Reagan Elementary School.Fun Fact: I grew up in Corona/Norco and am a proud product of this district.My educational background consists of Riverside Community College and Cal Baptist.I received an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Studies, a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies and Human Development, and a Master degree in Teaching.My family is very special to me. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jeff McKee. He works for the California Highway Patrol. We have TWO sweet boys named Charles "Charlie" and Henry. As newer parents, we are getting little sleep, but we are loving every minute! It has been so fun to watch our little guys grow and change every day.This will be my 14th year teaching...WOW! I have taught in two districts, five schools, and multiple grades. I've taught preschool, kinder, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, piloted the Transitional Kinder Program, and even coached high school pep squad. I have been with Reagan Elementary since it opened in 2015. I truly love working with children and helping them succeed.I am really looking forward to working with your child! Kindergarten is the first step on the educational path. My goal is to make them life long learners, that aren't afraid to think or question. Additionally, I hope to fill them with Reagan PRIDE as they learn problem solving, kindness, self confidence, and how to genuinely encourage others.
