Pollard, Nikki

I am passionate about early childhood education. My hope is for your child to grow socially and emotionally and also in their faith. I strive to make my classroom a happy space. I emphasize kindness and being a good citizen. I moved to Lafayette from Peoria, Illinois during the summer of 2022. Before joining the St. James team as the Indigo lead teacher I was a preschool director and Pre-K teacher for 7 years and previously taught kindergarten and third grade. I am excited to return to teaching kindergarten this year!
