Mrs. Pamela Nickerson-Wise
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
My name is Pamela Nickerson-Wise. I am a 6th grade English Language Arts Reading educator at Bessie Coleman Middle School. I want to foster and develop reading, both in learning to read and applying that knowledge in reading to learn, for all students.
My goal is to prepare your scholar to meet the demands of college, the workforce and life in the 21st century by acquiring the skills they need to be literate in a rapidly changing world.
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I graduated from Justin F. Kimball High School. I attended Prairie View A& M University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a minor in early childhood development and learning. My professional career began in Dallas Independent School District. I later attended the University of North Texas-Dallas and earned a Master's Degree in Educational Administration along with a principal certification.
Quote: "Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." --Marva Collins, Educator and Founder of Westside Preparatory School, Chicago Illinois 1975
