Welcome to Fifth Grade
    Mrs. Noelle Nicholas
    You have brains in your head.
    You have feet in your shoes.
    You can steer yourself in
    any direction you choose.

    Hello! Welcome to a new school year at Tamaqua Elementary!  My name is Noelle Nicholas.  I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade again this year. My teaching experiences include a long-term substitute teacher at Tamaqua Middle School, four years at Schuylkill Haven Middle School as a fifth grade teacher, and the last three years at Tamaqua Elementary. I'm originally from the Hazleton Area. I love to spend time with my husband, our chocolate lab, and our beautiful daughters, Grace, (and the twins) Lily, and Paige. I am excited for this new school year and all the fun adventures to begin!
    Fun things about me: I love spending time with my family, watching HGTV, and eating chocolate. Reading on my Kindle is my favorite hobby.
    If you have any questions for me during the school year, you may call the school at 570-668-3306 or email me at nnicholas@tamaqua.k12.pa.us. I will try to return your call either after school or during any available planning periods. Please allow me 24 hours to return your call or email.
    Fifth Graders: Be sure to set a good example for your younger classmates. You should be displaying and abiding by the Raider Rules. Be respectful, have a positive attitude, work on being independent, show your determination, be enthusiastic and responsible, and ultimately you will see success.
