Ms. Nikki

My Name is Nikki Groves and I am the Early Childhood Special Education Teacher at Cherokee Heights. All the students call me Ms Nikki. This is my 19th year working in the district. I have worked in many of the district's elementary schools, head starts and preschools across the city as well as in families homes. My favorite thing about working at Cherokee Heights is how it feels like a big family. Everyone takes care of each other and loves all the students as if they were our own. 

When I'm not working, I like to take care of my garden, watch my daughter play softball and volleyball, watch my son play basketball and baseball and spend time with family and friends. My husband and I live in Inver Grove Heights with our 13 year old daughter, 9 year old son and 3 year old son. We enjoy going for walks and going on adventures.
