Meet Mrs. Onken

Nikee Onken

My name is Nikee Onken.  I am a Colorado Native and just love the sunshine we have!  My credentials include a Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Elementary Education. I graduated from Metropolitan State University in 2006 and immediately joined the Timber Trail Family as a special needs assistant.  From there I taught half-day kindergarten and full-day kindergarten.  I am excited for my seventh year in first grade!  I obtained my Master's degree in Early Childhood Literacy from American Military University and I absolutely love implementing new fun into our reading curriculum!

 When I am not at school, I enjoy sewing, swimming, being outdoors, and spending time with my husband Andrew, our Silver Lab furbaby Freya May, and our incredible family.  Three things I absolutely cannot survive without are MUSIC, FLIP FLOPS, and Estes Park, Colorado!  I want to thank you for sharing your most precious gems with me each and every day!  I promise to love them as if they were my very own!  We are going to have an amazing adventure in first grade!
