Mrs. Nicole Welfel
My name is Mrs. Welfel and I am a sixth and seventh grade ELA teacher at Osceola Middle School. This is currently my 14th 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 13 years I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades. I have spent the majority of my time in elementary, but am very excited to be returning to middle school.
I have been married to my husband Steven for almost 9 years. We have a 7 year old son named Owen and our daughter Emma is almost 2. We have a Brittany Spaniel named Rusty who is about 9 years old. When I am not working, I love to spend my time with my family playing outside, going to the Santos trails to mountain bike, and watching movies. A few of my favorite things include reading, working out, Netflix, coffee, and Target! ;)
