Hello, I’m Nikki Marshall, and I have a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. This will be my second year at Ridgeline Academy and I love how much Ridgeline feels like a family!
My philosophy on teaching is to teach in an engaging and differentiated classroom that meets the needs of all my learners. No two students are the same, nor will they learn exactly the same way. It is my job to meet each of my students on their level and watch their growth and accomplishments, which may look different for each student. I believe in kindness and having a growth mindset and students in my class will know they are respected, they are loved, and they will get there, even if they haven’t gotten there yet!
I am a happily married wife to an incredible bass playing musician for 13 years and Mama to four AMAZING boys aged 12-6 (who all attend Ridgeline). When I am not lesson planning, I am spending my time with my family, hiking, knitting, reading, and watching my boys in musicals, choir concerts, and various sporting events.
