Ms. Nicole Stokes
My name is Nicole Stokes and this is my nineteenth year in education. In January 2019, I moved from the position of Deer Valley's Math Coach to serving as Deer Valley's Assistant Principal. I am beyond honored to continue serving the students, faculty, and families of a school I have come to know and love!
Prior to serving as math coach, I had the privilege of teaching second and third grade here at DVES. Before joining the DV family in 2006, I taught first grade for five years at Kate Shepard Elementary in Mobile, Alabama. During my eighteen year career, I've had the honor of being named Teacher of the Year at both, Kate Shepard Elementary and Deer Valley Elementary.
I am a graduate of Alabama A&M University (Huntsville, Alabama). I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, grades 1-6. I also hold a MBA with a Human Resource concentration, which I obtained from the Birmingham Campus of the University of Phoenix. Most recently, I completed coursework for UAB's Educational Leadership Program where I earned a Master of Arts Education in Educational Leadership.
On a personal note, I was born in Mobile, Alabama - but spent the first 17 years of my life in New Orleans, Louisiana. WHO DAT?!? My family relocated to Mobile, Alabama in 1994 and I moved to Birmingham in 2006 to continue my teaching career. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, watching Saints football, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends.
I look forward to continuing to work alongside some of the best and brightest students and teachers in the world!
