Mrs. Thelen

Hello! My name is Nichole Thelen and I am a first grade teacher at Kent Island Elementary School. I love being a teacher in Queen Anne’s County especially since I grew up and attended Queen Anne’s County Public Schools myself! After graduating from Towson University in 2013 I taught second grade in Baltimore County for four years. Realizing that I wanted to be closer to family, I moved back to the Eastern Shore and started teaching first grade at KIES and have been here ever since. Time flies when you’re having fun! I'm currently working towards my Masters Degree in Education through La Salle University. I have an adorable daughter, Reese, that I love spending time with! I also enjoy reading, biking and traveling. My favorite travel destinations are Greece, Italy and Switzerland. I'm looking forward to getting started on an awesome first grade year!
