Nicole Drakeford

Hello! My name is Nicole Drakeford, and I teach fourth and fifth grade (Building Bridges) at Lesslie Elementary! I hold a bachelor's degree from Montreat College and a master's degree from Walden University. I am grateful and delighted to be a part of such a wonderful school and district that shares my passion for learning and teaching. In the year 2021, I began my teaching profession. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, attending poetry slams, visiting art galleries, and teaching dance.“The children who need love the most will always ask for it in the most unloving ways”
