Hello My Name Is...

Nicole Ardolino

Nicole Ardolino has been working with students since she was a high school student herself. She started as a tutor at the YMCA SAFE program in 1996. After graduating high school, she worked at a warehouse for Garnet Hill (a catalog company), where she met her husband, Tony. When Garnet Hill’s warehouse closed and moved to Ohio, Nicole realized that she was happiest working with students. She became a substitute teacher for the Littleton/Bethlehem/Lisbon school district. She was hired as a paraeducator at Lancaster School a year later. In July of 2004, she and Tony celebrated the birth of their daughter, Kassidy. Six months later, Nicole decided that she wanted to be a classroom teacher, so she began college courses in 2005. She began working a Whitefield Elementary School in 2006, where she continued to work as a paraeducator. She graduated from Granite State College in 2010 with a BA in Liberal Studies (Language Arts) and continued to work toward teacher certification. She was hired as a 6th grade teacher at Whitefield in 2012 and has since become a Middle School teacher, where she works with a very talented, caring team of teachers.
