Hello! My name is Nicole Kovacs and I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio. The 2018-19 school year is my 3rd year at Mountain View Elementary and my 15th year teaching overall. Throughout these years of teaching I have a wide range of experiences working with a variety of ages and needs. My passion to work with children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing started when I was 7 years old. I met a friend on my street who was Deaf; She taught me sign language and gave me the excitement to go for a career in this field. I attended Kent State University to earn my degree as a Deaf Intervention Specialist. Here at Mountain View I work with our mainstream D/HH students in the 1st through 5th grades- providing them with the support and instruction they need to be productive members of the community. I look forward to an amazing year!
