Welcome to 5th Grade!

I am pleased to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express how proud I am to be a part of Faubion Elementary's 5th Grade team!  My name is Nicole Davis,some of you may remember me from last year as Ms. Oestmann.

I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago, IL.  I love the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Cubs!  I graduated in May 2013 from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, IL.  This is my fourth year of teaching, my first two years were spent at Jim Plain Elementary in Leander as a self-contained (teaching Math, Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies) 5th grade teacher.  I LOVED becoming a part of the Faubion family last year.  I am excited to be a 5th grade math and science teacher at Faubion, two subjects that I LOVE to teach!  I am looking forward to helping your student develop a love of both subjects.

A little bit about me: I was recently married to my wonderful husband, Josh.  My husband and I live in Round Rock with our dog, Nina.  On my free time I enjoy, crafting, taking walks on the Brushy Creek Regional Trail, gardening, reading, swimming, challenging myself in the kitchen, and working on home decorating/improvement projects.  

I believe that a good learning experience is built on the cooperative effort among parent, student and teacher.  I am looking forward to being partners in your child's academic success this school year!  I look forward to the work and growth that we will all accomplish this year.  My expectations for conduct and academic standards are high.  With your child's participation, both in and out of the classroom, we can look forward to a productive and enjoyable year together.

Parents, please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns that you may have.  My classroom door is always open, and messages can be left for me through voicemail or email.  In order to minimize classrom distractions during all students learning time, I request that you please save phone calls to the classroom for either my planning period (8:00-8:30) or after-school, or send an email at any time.  I will respond as soon as possible, typically on my planning period or before/after school.

Sincerely,
Nicole Davis
