Hello ~ My name is Mrs. Nicole Penland and I am thrilled to be working at River Oaks with our amazing students! I provide specialized resource services to students both in their classroom and during small group pull-out. I support students with their academic skills, behavior goals, and work habits in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade.
I earned an M.Ed. from Vanderbilt University and recently completed my Ed.S. in reading from the University of Virginia. This is my 15th year teaching ~ I have experience teaching students with special needs both in the resource and self-contained classroom settings. My family and I enjoy living in Northern Virginia and taking advantage of all this area has to offer!
Please feel free to contact me any time with your questions or concerns.
