HI! I'm Nicole Emmert. I have been a teacher for 21 years with Person County Schools in Hurdle Mills, North Carolina at Oak Lane Elementary School. I am currently the media specialist and Academically/Intellectually Gifted teacher at Oak Lane Elementary. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Elementary Education; then, I earned my Master's degree in Library Science and Information Skills from East Carolina University. I am certified to teach high school English Literature and do so online with North Carolina Virtual Public Schools. I am a Nationally Board certified teacher, former Oak Lane's Teacher of the Year (multiple times), a former Outstanding Young Educator for Person County, and recipient of multiple Pride in Person Awards. I was honored to be selected by the UNC Global Institute's Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies' for the 2014 Mexico Study Tour. (If you'd like to read blog about my teacher travels in Mexico, you can do so here on this site!) Most recently, I was selected as a 2019-2020 Kenan Fellow!! Now, I add my Kenan Fellow experiences to this blog!
The Mexico Study Tour was planned and implemented by: The Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University. The contact information is:
