2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade


I attended Elon University in Elon, NC. I graduated early in January of 2013 with a BA in art history and a BA in strategic communications. Immediately following, I attended East Carolina University for my NC teacher's certification. I have just completed my Academically/Intellectually Gifted license through a generous partnership between ECU and Onslow County Schools.

In college I worked for America Reads, a tutoring program that placed coollege tutors in low income schools. This sparked my interest in education, and I spent all my summers interning in various museums, including three children's programs. After graduating, I was accepted into the North Carolina Teacher Corps, a program run by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to place non-education majors as lateral entry teachers into NC schools with the highest need. After teaching third grade in Kinston, I came to Onslow County Schools to teach second grade at Jacksonville Commons Elementary. After three rewarding years at JCE, I am happy to be at Northwoods Elementary to teach my wonderful fourth graders!


My name is Nicole Adams and I love second grade! I have taught third grade in the past, and interned in a kindergarten classroom, but my adventures in second grade get better each day! I am very active with Odyssey of the Mind, a creative problem solving competition that is available to students in Onslow County. I am native to New Jersey but live in Jacksonville with my husband, our two dogs, and our cat.

I am excited to teach your child and participate as they learn and grow! Feel free to contact me anytime by email at or by phone at the school, (910) 347-1056.
