Mrs. Nicole Onufer
Born in Durham, NC, I grew up in Jacksonville, NC and graduated from JHS in 1994. I received a NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship to attend East Carolina University and graduated cum laude in 1998. I began my teaching career in Pitt County, NC and am currently in the middle of my 21st year of teaching in North Carolina schools. My first 18 years were in elementary music and I am very much enjoying the switch to middle school. This is my 3rd year as a Highland Middle School Viking!
I am a National Board certified teacher in Early/Middle Childhood music and have teaching certifications in K-12 music, ESL, and AIG. I love to learn so I am constantly adding more certifications to my teaching license.
I married my husband, Mike, in 2001 and we currently have two fur babies, Callie and Luna. We love to travel, watch movies, and hang out with our friends.
