Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Nicki Buchmiller, ESL Teacher
College: I graduated from Maryville University St. Louis.
Teaching History: This is my 9th year teaching in Plano ISD. I started as a SPED assistant at Mathews Elementary and spent 7 years teaching 2nd grade at Skaggs Elementary. This will be my first year at Huffman as the ESL Specialist.
Family: My amazing husband Dane and I have been married for 10 years. We have 2 wonderful children, our daughter, Blakely (5) and our son, Cuyler (3). We also have a precious 8-year-old French Bulldog named Felix.
Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: Outside of teaching I spend most of my time doing activities with my children, crafting (I love making things!), reading, and I love to run!
Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman?: I feel very blessed to say teaching is truly something I love to do! Being a teacher is not a job for me, it is a passion of mine to challenge minds, and guide students to become lifelong learners! I love that the IB World School at Huffman Elementary follows my beliefs on teaching the whole child and the development of open-minded citizens.
