Meet Miss Mizak
Hi! My name is Nicole Mizak. I graduated from Bloomsburg University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education in May of 2000. I also earned a master's degree in reading from Kutztown University in December of 2006. I have been working in the Northwestern Lehigh School District for the last 15 years. I began my career in 2001 as a long term substitute for the gifted support program (K-4) in both elementary buildings. Then, in 2002 I was hired to teach Kindergarten at Northwestern Elementary for three years. I continued my teaching career at NWE for the next six years in second grade. I am now entering my sixth year of teaching 3rd grade at Weisenberg Elementary.
My Background & Interests
I grew up in a small rural town just outside of Jim Thorpe called Summit Hill. It is located in the coal region and has a very small population. I have a younger sister named Jennifer who graduated from Penn State University. We are major Penn State fans! I also have two nieces named Gianna and Myla and a nephew named Gabriel . Gianna is the oldest and Myla and Gabriel are twins.
When I am not at school, I enjoy working out, golfing, skiing, playing volleyball, reading, volunteering with the Junior League and spending time with my family and friends. Beyond playing sports, I also enjoy watching them too! My favorite NFL team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Their colors are black and and gold just like Weisenberg Elementary's school colors. I try to attend at least 1 game a year. Pittsburgh is my favorite place to visit!
Well, I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me and what I like to do for fun! Come back and visit my home page often for information on our classroom and curriculum.
