Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Nicole Colbert

Kindergarten Teacher

Welcome to Kindergarten and to this amazing Bear Creek community! I have been teaching at Bear Creek since 2018 and have previously taught Kindergarten in Northern California. I received my teaching certification and my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois. And I hold a Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction: Literacy Studies from the Univeristy of Texas. My goal in Kindergarten is to cultivate an environment where students feel encouraged, challenged, and motivated to learn.

My family moved to Colorado in 2018 upon the retirement of my husband from the Air Force. We spent 26 years in the military, lived in 7 different states, and grew our family by four sons! I love to explore the outdoors, read historical fiction, and watch movies with my family!

If you have any questions or concerns, contact me anytime at During the school week, I will respond within 24 hours. On the weekend, I will respond by the next school day. We'll find the answers together!
