Mrs. Nishikawa

Hello! My name is Kerry Nishikawa. I have been teaching for 14 years, 9 of which have been in kindergarten, 2 in 3rd grade, and this is my 4th year as a Title 1 teacher. This will be my 15th year at Chief Joseph. I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Idaho in 2006. 

Although, I have only been the Title 1 teacher for a short time, I have really enjoyed it. It has been amazing for me to watch and listen 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 16 years. I have two sons, Jackson and Kyler, who both attended Chief Jo. 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!
