Favorite TLE® Character:
Grace Charity

Mrs. Nikki joined the TLE team with 8 years of experience in Child care and teaching. She loves being part of shaping little hearts and minds. Watching children for that "AH HA" moment when they learn something new or recognize their name and letters is a special experience. Ms. Nikki grew up in Norfolk, Virginia where her Dad served in the Navy for 23 years. When she was nine, her family moved to Minnesota where she grew up until she left for college at 17. During college she was engaged and married after graduating to her husband of 9 years, Chad, also a Navy veteran. They moved to Florida after Chad got out of the military to be near her parents. In her free time Ms. Nikki enjoys taking many trips to Disney and spending time with her family. Nikki and her husband are starting a new journey as Foster Parents this summer.
