Mrs. Nishikawa

Hello! My name is Kerry Nishikawa. I have been teaching for 15 years, 9 of which have been in kindergarten, 2 in 3rd grade, and this is my 5th year as a Title 1 teacher. This will be my 16th year at Chief Joseph. I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Idaho in 2006. 

I love what I do, and I love Chief Jo! I teach because I really enjoy watching and listening to the amazing learning and growth that happens with my students. I am looking forward to the rest of the year!

I have been married to my husband Russ for 17 years. I have two sons, Jackson and Kyler, who both attended Chief Jo, but are now in middle and high school  I have a dog named Kappie.  When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, swimming and camping.  

I am proud to be a member of the Chief Jo Team!
