- 2nd Grade
Hi! My name is Barb McNichols and I am excited to be teaching second grade. I am originally from Chicago, IL. I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Elementary Education. My husband and I moved to Colorado to complete our Master’s Degrees from the University of Colorado, Boulder. This is my 30th year of teaching (yes, I’m old!). Throughout my career, I have taught all of the primary grades at many St. Vrain School locations. Outside of school, I have 2 children. My son, Matt, is an electrical engineer at Seagate and my daughter, Elizabeth, is studying audiology at the University of Colorado. My newest hobby is stand up paddle boarding! It’s a great way to challenge myself and get out to spend time in our beautiful state! I can’t wait for us to spend this year on an epic journey of working hard to learn and grow together!
