Ms. Nikki

My Name is Nikki Groves and I am the Early Childhood Special Education Teacher at Cherokee Heights. This is my first year being full time at Cherokee. Last year I was part time. This is my 17th year working in the district. I have worked in many of the district's elementary schools, head starts and preschools across the cities as well as in families homes. 

When I'm not working, I like to take care of my garden, watch my daughter play softball, and spend time with family and friends. My husband and I live in Inver Grove Heights with our 11 year old daughter, 8 year old son and 18 month old son. We recently bought a new home and are enjoying making it our own. We enjoy going for walks and going on adventures.
