About Mrs. McNickle

Art Teacher at Lakewood Elementary
Hello and welcome to Art Class! I am so happy to be your students' teacher and really look forward to making some wonderful memories this year with our new school family. I absolutely love teaching and feel that the most important thing in the classroom is having a connection with each student. Once this is established, let the fun begin!

I have taught kindergarten, first grade, and ART, which I absolutely love!  I am also certified to teach GT and ESL . I have been married to my wonderful husband, Tony, for 8 years and have three boys. We enjoy swimming in our pool, traveling to our lake house at Canyon Lake, eating out, reading books, going to concerts, crafting, and spending time with family.
