Hi Hulstrom families! My name is Nicole Carone and I'm thrilled to be a part of the All-Star staff. I graduated from Sonoma State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies in 2012. I continued my education at San Jose State University earning a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and a Master of Arts in Education and graduated in 2014. I taught third grade for three years in San Jose, California before my husband and I moved to Colorado in 2017. I also taught kindergarten at a charter school in Denver from 2017-2018. We bought our first home in Broomfield in early 2018 and quickly fell in love with the area. However, the commute to Denver was taxing and caused me to move into teaching in Adams 12 Five Stars Schools in 2018. I taught first grade at Rocky Mountain Elementary in Westminster from 2018-2020 and loved teaching beginning reading and math skills. I am overjoyed to teach first grade at Hulstrom this year and look forward to an All-Star year!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy running, hiking, camping, skiing, reading, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my husband, daughter, and Australian Shepherd. We also love working on home improvement projects and exploring all Colorado has to offer!
