Mrs. Nikki Doering
Hi and thank you for visiting my page!
My name is Nikki Doering, and I teach the Cross Categorical Kindergarten classroom at Ballentine Elementary. I am so excited to get to work with your child, and watch them grow throughout the school year!
I am originally from Stephens City, Virginia, where I spent most of my childhood. I attended Radford University, in Radford, Virginia, and graduated with my B.S. in 2009 and with my M.S. in Early Childhood/ Early Childhood Special Education in 2010. I then moved to Salem, Virginia, where I taught for 4 years in a Special Education Pre-k classroom. In 2014, my husband and I moved to Raleigh so that he could pursue his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at NC State. I was so lucky to be offered a job at Ballentine Elementary, where I taught pre-k for one year and then moved into CCK. Ballentine has been a wonderful home, and I feel so blessed to continue to work with children with special needs in such a supportive and positive environment.
In 2015 my husband and I moved to Holly Springs and we got a corgi puppy named Nigel, who is now 2 years old. I love going to the beach, practicing yoga, reading, and spending time with family and friends. Life is good!
