Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Nicole Blanks
I was born in Portland, ME, but raised in Kingston, NH. I attended Chestnut-Hill College in Philadelphia, Pa, where I earned my B.A in History. In 2012, I moved to Charlotte, NC to participate in TEACH Charlotte. I worked for the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System for 5 years; as a Special Education Teacher. While in CMS, I worked at James Martin Middle School, where I served as the EC chair, co-taught 6th grade ELA, piloted FUSION Reading and taught a self-contained behavior class (6-8). I transferred to Cabarrus County at the end of the 2016-2017 school year to take a position as an Elementary EC Lead. Over the past year, I have supported students and teachers at Mt. Pleasant Elementary, Coltrane-Webb, and R Brown McAllister. For the 2018-2019 school year, I will be the EC chair at RBM and J.N Fries Middle School. I am excited for the opportunity to support students and staff members at both schools!
My husband and I live in Concord, NC and we recently welcomed our first child, a baby girl.
