Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to a new school year! I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Nichole Coombe, and I am the Special Education Department Lead at Sky Ranch. I will be working with 8th grade in ELA.
Background Information: I went to Chico State University where I completed by degree in Liberal Studies (Elementary education). I received my Master’s in Special Education in 2013 from Grand Canyon University. I have worked in the district for 19 years now! I had the honor and privilege of opening Sky Ranch Middle school and have been at Sky Ranch since the beginning.
In the classroom, we work hard to accomplish our IEP goals and objectives, but we also get the opportunity to work on our executive functioning skills and understand our social emotional learning. I am a big believer that students who practice these skills frequently both in and out of school will make faster progress. I also firmly believe that a child must believe in themselves and understand their strengths and weaknesses to move forward and learn new strategies and skills to grow and be successful.
