My name is Nikki DeRusha and I am so excited to be the Virtual Kindergarten Teacher for Lowell! This will be my sixth year with the School District of Waukesha. Prior to teaching at Lowell, I was a First grade and Kindergarten teacher at Whittier Elementary for five years. I also taught for the DC Everest School District in the Wausau area and in Minneapolis, MN.
I always enjoy staying busy, and having two big dogs certainly helps with that! I love walking my dogs, gardening, puzzling and building/crafting with my boyfriend Adam.
My family is amazing and I love visiting them. Thankfully, my sister, brother and parents all reside in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, allowing plenty of time with everyone when we go up for visits! With the addition of my niece Miriam and my parents' new puppy, our times together have definitely been filled with fun and entertainment!
