Hello! My name is Nicole Kotyk and I am excited to teach 6th grade ELA and social studies at Austin Discovery School. I grew up in Pennsylvania and studied elementary and special education at Penn State University. I wanted a career where I could help people make discoveries, learn about the world, and improve their lives. I have worked with upper elementary and middle school students for the past seven years. I enjoyed two years working as an assistant teacher, then two years teaching sixth grade ELA, and twp years teaching English as a foreign language in Japan. This is my second year at ADS and I am excited to see both new and familiar faces! I'm looking forward to the new school year and helping students work towards their reading and writing goals. I'm excited for the memories we'll make as we challenge ourselves daily.
