Ms. Karen Nichols

4th Grade Teacher
 Room Number: A-105

My name is Karen Nichols and I teach fourth grade at Carberry Elementary. I was born and raised in Emmett and graduated from Emmett High School. I have a BA in elementary education from Boise State University. Go Broncos! I have been teaching for fourteen years. Ten years have been at Carberry. During that time, I have taught special education, 5th grade, and Title-1. This is my third year in 4th grade and I am loving it! I am blessed to be a mother to three fabulous teenagers: Kayla, Bryan, and Billy.



It is my belief that in order to grow, students need an environment that is safe and secure. They need to be comfortable asking questions and trying new things. They need to be able to make a mistake and know it is not the end of the world, but to learn from that mistake and move forward. Learning is a life long process. It’s my job to help develop the skills to enable students to continue in their own journey of learning.
