Mrs. Nicole Rider

Hello Constitution families!

   As you see, my name is Nicole Rider and I'll be teaching 5th grade. Though this is my 2nd year at Constitution, this year will be my 6th year teaching 5th grade. I absolutely LOVE teaching and can't wait to meet your kiddos!

   A little about me- I was born here in AZ, but lived most of my life in South Carolina. I moved back here in 2013 with my husband and son. I graduated from Grand Canyon University (Lopes Up!) in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. 

   When I am not teaching, I like to spend time with my husband and son (who starts college at University of Advance Technology in September) playing board games and video games (yes I am a gamer). I like spending time with my furry babies, Buddy (dog) and PJ (cat). I also LOVE to read and watch sports (Go DBacks, Cardinals, Coyotes, and SC Gamecocks!) 

   I am so glad we are starting school in person, and while we aren't 100% back to normal, we're still going to learn and have fun TOGETHER! If you ever have questions or concerns, please contact me through Class Dojo or email (
