Nichole Coker -First Grade Teacher

Hi, my name is Nichole Coker, I am happily married to my husband and we have two beautiful daughters, Mackenzie (5) and Chloe (8). My husband and I both graduated from The Colony High School in the same year. We love to travel and spend time as a family whether it’s watching movies or hunting its always together! I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos with a Psychology degree. I recently became a teacher 3 years ago and have truly found my passion. This is my first year at Chavez and already it feels like home. I look forward to calling Chavez my school for the next 30 years!

5th Grade Reading Buddies

ESL teacher, Teri Smith, realized that our 1st grade students needed extra opportunities to read out loud. Mrs. Smith worked with 1st grade and 5th grade teachers to select students who would be good reading buddies for the program. Students were trained and began meeting with their 1st grade buddies in the first week of December. Students read together for 30 minutes 3-4 times a week. The program has been a hit according to students and teachers alike. "I have been amazed at the commitment of our 5th grade students to help our 1st grader students" according to Mrs. Smith.

This program supports the following Great Expectations that we strive for at Chavez.

#4 We will cheer each other to success.

#5 We will help one another whenever possible.

Way to go 5th graders!
