My name is Nicole Pratten and I will be your child’s Kindergarten teacher.  I am so excited to get to know you and your child—it is going to be a fabulous year! 

Kindergarten is a busy and exciting time.  Your child will  develop reading skills, build their math knowledge, and explore new topics in science, social studies, and health.  This is an important year for academics, but also for making new friends, establishing our classroom community, and having fun.  I hope your child leaves Kindergarten with happy memories to last a lifetime! 

This will be my third year teaching at JES. Prior to that, I taught in Faribault, MN as a First Grade teacher and a Reading Interventionist. This fall I will be starting a Masters Program at Concordia University in Saint Paul.  This summer I was busy nannying and planning my upcoming wedding. My fiance, Jeff, and I will be married on October 7th.  I will work on transitioning the students from Ms. Pratten to Mrs. Dietz over time.  In my free time I enjoy running, reading, cooking and spending time with my family and friends. 

Please feel free to contact me at any point with questions or concerns.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
