Mrs. Nicole Welfel
My name is Mrs. Welfel and I am a third grade teacher at Eighth Street Elementary School. This is currently my 11th year of teaching. I am originally from the Chicagoland area, but have been in Ocala since 1998. I am proud to say that I am a product of Marion County Public Schools, graduating from Belleview High School. I attended the University of Central Florida and majored in Elementary Education. I am certified to teacher K-6, and English grades 6-12. Over the last 10 years I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades. I have spent the longest time in 5th grade, which I enjoyed, but I am really loving third grade! I am excited to work with my students and their families this year!
I have been married to my husband Steven for almost 6 years. We have a 4 year old son named Owen who is currently in VPK getting ready for kindergarten next year. We have a Brittany Spaniel named Rusty who is about 7 years old. Between Owen and Rusty, we are definitely kept busy at home! When I am not working, I love to spend my time with my family playing outside, going on the boat, and watching movies. A few of my favorites include reading, working out/running, coffee, and Target! ;)
