Mrs. Nikki Tye

Hi! My name is Nikki Tye. I teach sixth, seventh, and eighth grade personalized math. 

I started my teaching career in Arizona teaching fifth grade. After one year in Arizona, I moved to Iowa but continued teaching fifth grade. My next move was to Illinois where I taught sixth grade in Waukegan. I was then lucky enough to get a job in Deerfield. While I have been in 109, I have taught fifth and second grades, have been a math coach, math/differentiation coach and an instructional coach and have called South Park, Kipling, Wilmot and Shepard my home at one time or another. I have an elementary education degree with an endorsement in middle education plus a masters in curriculum and instruction and an adminstrator's license.

I enjoy spending time with my twins, Peter and Randi, my husband and our dog, Iva. I love vacationing in California and anywhere I can go shelling. My biggest downfall is my love for dogs, especially bulldogs!
