Dear Families,Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! My name is Niki Pascale and I will be your child's teacher this year! I’m very excited about the upcoming year and have many things in store for my students. They will be learning about Westward Expansion, Native American tribes, Geography, States of Matter, and we will be able to do fabulous activities with insects!At this time, I want to let you know a little bit about myself. I grew up in Tempe and attended Corona del Sol High School. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education and graduated with Honors from University of Phoenix. This will be my second year at Power Ranch Elementary school as a 2nd grade teacher. I previously worked for two years in Special Education at a charter school. I feel very fortunate to be apart of the Power Ranch staff as well as your teacher! I enjoy going to Disneyland, gardening, reading, swimming, and spending time with my family. My other passions are Target, Starbucks, Halloween, anything vintage, and anything having to do with History. I am married and have a son who also attends school at Power Ranch.I believe that teachers and parents should all work together as a team to encourage our students. I strongly believe in a warm, caring, and supportive classroom that is also very structured and organized. We should all respect and encourage each other throughout the year. Communication is very important, so feel free to contact me at any time. My email is email@example.com.I look forward to this coming year and working with all of my students to help them achieve success in the classroom!
