Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Nicole Kelpe. This year I am super excited to be teaching 6th and 7th grade language arts and 6th grade language arts skills.
Parents, I have an open door policy in my classroom and welcome you anytime. Additionally, please contact me with any questions, concerns or comments you have. You can email, text, call me or stop by the classroom to talk. I am very excited for the opportunity to work with your children this year. I love teaching and I absolutely love Colony Middle School and its wonderful students and families.
I was born in Anchorage and raised in Palmer. I currently live in the Hatcher Pass area with my family. My husband, Ken, is a helicopter pilot with LifeMed. My oldest son, Anthony, is in his fourth year of college at UAF studying computer engineering. My son, Isaiah, is in his second year of college at UAA studying computer engineering. My son, Sawyer, is in 8th grade at Colony Middle School. My daughter, Shirley, is in 6th grade at CMS. All my children spent time attending and loving Colony Middle School.
When I am not at school I love spending time with my family and doing anything that gets us outdoors exploring our wonderful state of Alaska. I also enjoy yoga, horseback riding, reading, running, gardening, skiing and hiking.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
