Tell us about yourself!
Hello! My name is Nicole Selvaggi-Landry ~ I am going into my 5th year at Frank G. Lindsey in one of the kindergarten classrooms! I also coach cheerleading for HHHS and am Director of the youth program that I started for cheerleading for grades K-6!
What inspired you to become a teacher?
Working with children and coaching children while watching them grow has always been a passion of mine. Their little minds are always inquiring and their love to learn is beyond rewarding.
What is your favorite thing about being a teacher?
My favorite thing about being a teacher is when you are actually able to learn from your students. As I am teaching them, they are teach me. And when they come back when they are older to say “thanks” it validates why I chose to teach!!!!!!!
Can you describe what makes you feel FABULOUS when teaching/being a teacher?
There are many things but what makes me feel fabulous is walking into the classroom every day, or during this time of the world, logging into to a google meet and the children greeting you with “good morning, what are we doing today!?” They rely on my as their teacher to fill their day with knowledge and love and there is nothing more fabulous than that!!!
Thank you, Nicole, for being such a light and inspiration in all of the children’s lives you touch. Whether it be a kindergartner in the classroom, a youth cheerleader who aspires to be on your team one day, or the high school athletes you coach-you have single handedly made our community a better place. We know the future will be nothing but successful and fabulous for you, and we look forward to seeing all that you will accomplish in the future!
