Ms. Nicole Droppa

Greetings, Valued Families,

I am Ms. Droppa, the new first grade teacher at Greater Works Christian School.  I can’t wait to meet all the wonderful students, siblings and parents/guardians of this school!  

I am a proud graduate of Carlow University with a degree in Elementary Education and where I am currently pursuing a Master Degree of Early Childhood Education.

I have an extensive teaching and program background working with students with behavioral, learning, emotional, and physical challenges in both the for-profit and non-profit arenas.  Earlier in my career, I taught first and sixth grade.  I spent the middle part of my career developing and instructing STEAM, Literacy and Healthy Living Curriculum to grade school and middle school students.  Recently, I worked with young adults in a higher education and trade school setting.

I strive to teach hands-on learning, Montessori style education, and for every lesson to meet all learning styles. I encourage divergent thinking in the classroom, incorporate enrichment activities in every way possible, and follow a multicultural, multi-dimensional. and faith-based curriculum. My favorite subjects to teach are English Language Arts and Science, but I am happy to engage inquisitive and creative minds about any topic.  

There are two aspects of my life that I am passionate about: faith and education.  I aspire to model, encourage and inspire this same desire for God’s love and faithfulness and the thirst for learning to the students in my classroom.

I recognize that parents are a fundamental influence in a child’s life.  Parents know their children best!  I look forward to partnering with the parents/guardians of the first grade class to ensure their children’s success. 


I look forward to meeting each of you, and I anticipate an awesome school year learning together! 

Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
