Dr. P.J. Nickels Week Begins

Her motto is; “Teaching Done Right, All Children Can Learn!”

A former Elementary School Principal, author Dr. P.J. Nickels also uses her extensive background in education as the curriculum coordinator for Pennie Rich Publishing ( All of her books in her children’s series have interactive lesson guides, which are aligned to the U.S. National Standards of Learning and the Key Stages of Learning in the UK.

Dr. Nickels holds a double Master’s Degree in Linguistics and English as a Second Language and a Doctorate of Ministry in Education. She was a classroom Spanish/ESL Teacher, a School Administrator, worked for the Colo. Department of Education as a Teacher of Teachers, Curriculum Consultant, Grant Reader and was on the Spanish Bias and State Standardized Testing committees. She is also a member of the Adams State College Presidents Honour Society and has worked as an Adjunct Professor in the ASC Education Department.

Dr. Nickel’s first volumes of her three new series of books, includes;

1) Nuni of Nunivak Island, A New Friend
2) Lewis the Lemur Adventures, The Belly of the Beast
3) Vultures in the Cemetery

These three series each have a methodically created, standards aligned, cross curriculum Lesson Guide and Audio Book available to assist teachers and parents to teach reading, literacy, science, history, geography and math.

I will be reviewing each book this week and as an added bonus, if you have any questions for Dr. Nickels you may leave them in the comment section of any of this weeks Blog Spots. In addition, I will be giving away the set of the first three books in Dr. Nickel’s series as well as the Lesson Guide for Nuni of Nunivak Island, A New Friend. This will be done as a random drawing on Saturday February 20th from the questions or comments left.

Don't miss this opportunity and Good Luck!
