Hello! My name is Nikki Petri and I am your child's third grade teacher. I'm very excited for a fantastic year! I received my bachelor's degree from Widener University in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. I also have my master's degree in Instructional Technology from Widener as well. I was a four year basketball player on the Widener Women's Basketball Team, which was an amazing experience! This will be my second year at LLE teaching third grade! Before coming to LLE, I taught second grade in Plainfield, NJ.
This past summer I adopted a dog! He is a red labrador retriever named Waylon!
Teaching has always been a passion of mine from a young age. It is a privilege to see children grow, develop, and become successful. I believe in collaborative, hands-on learning. I look forward to an amazing year!
