Hi! My name is Nicole Colon and this is my 15th year as a teacher in the River Edge school district. Prior to teaching Kindergarten, I taught 1st grade at Cherry Hill. I am a wife and mother of a handsome and energetic 8yr old 2nd grader and a beautiful 2 year old baby girl. I graduated from William Paterson University with my Elementary teaching degree in K-8 and have obtained my Master's Degree from Rowan University as a Reading Specialist. I enjoy cooking and traveling with my family and love the summer months. We have one cat named Luna and a rambunctious dog named Stella. I also volunteer my time on an animal rescue team, working with pet adoptions. My motto on life is, "There is never enough love to give". I care about and respect all that comes my way and I encourage my students to do the same.
