Mrs. Margaret Nickerson

       Welcome to third grade! There will be many new learning adventures this year! Feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. Here is my email address:  Use the links to the left to learn more about our class!

         My name is Margaret Nickerson, and I am originally from Irmo, SC. I actually went to Irmo Elementary as a child! I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I received my Master’s Degree in Language and Literacy from the University of South Carolina. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy.  I have taught 4K EXCEL, first, second, and third grade at Irmo Elementary. This will be my 13th year as an educator!  In addition to teaching future leaders, I've served as the Teacher Technology Leader, presented at national conferences, attended SCRI training, attended Art Infused Inquiry Based Learning training, served as the Teacher of the Year, and served as the Columbia Distinguished Teacher of Literacy.

I absolutely love my career as an educator. I am always learning and growing. I love to talk about student learning and welcome ANY questions parents have. Parents are teachers too, and I love working together with you!

When I'm not teaching, I am chasing my two wild boys. Because of them, I have become an expert on dinosaurs, sports, and anything creepy crawly. I love coffee, reading, kayaking, and anything outside. My husband is from Florida and a huge Gator fan. I pull for Clemson. :)
