Welcome to Mrs. Vanek's 5th Grade Class
Hello! My name is Nicole (Niki) Vanek and I'm thrilled to be teaching 5th grade at Lewis & Clark this year. I can't wait to start our amazing learning journey together. While there are a lot of unknowns in our world right know, there is one thing I believe with my whole heart that helps me feel calm and that is that we are in this together and we will get through it together, no matter what this school year looks like. WE'VE GOT THIS!
I think the IB Learner Profile attribute that best describes me is Open Minded. I strive each day to understand and appreciate the perspectives of others. In our classroom we will work together to create a safe, nurturing learning enviroment where we share ideas, honor one another's contributions and act to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
