About Me

About me:

 

    Hello, my name is Kristen Nuchols and I have the wonderful opportunity to teach your child science this upcoming 2015-2016 school year.  I am originally from Cape Coral, Florida, but I have lived in quite a few places including North Carolina, Virginia, Seattle, Texas, and now Tennessee.  I received my Bachelor's degree in Criminology from the University of South Florida in Tampa.  My initial intent was to attend law school, but I decided to start a family and spent many years taking care of my son Nathan.  I now have three kids:  Nathan is 18 and enlisted in the Army, Drew is 6 attending Northshore Elementary, and Samantha is 4 attending Primrose School. 

  Eventually, I used my degree and became a police officer in El Paso, Texas before moving to Knoxville in 2008.  I recently attended the University of Tennessee where I received my Master's degree in Middle Grades Education.  This year will be my third year teaching science and I am really excited to be a part of your child's education.  I love Knoxville and love teaching and can't wait to work with you and your child this school year.
