Mrs. Riser's Class

Mrs. Nicki Riser

Welcome to 3rd Grade


About Me:

Hello and welcome to third grade! My name is Nicki Riser and I will be your 3rd grade teacher this year. I have been teaching for over 8 years. I am excited and honored to have this opportunity to work with you. I believe teaching stems from teamwork – together we can reach so many new heights and have so many wonderful experiences.

A little bit about me: I attended Louisiana Tech University where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing. I then went to University of Louisiana in Monroe where I received my teaching certification, as well as my Masters in Education. I have worked with children in some capacity for the past 15 years. I enjoy the enthusiasm and wonder for the world that children possess.

My husband, 2 children (son and daughter), and I enjoy traveling together and exploring places like Chicago, Texas, and Florida. Our repeat, family favorite is New Orleans where the Audubon Zoo is located and good food is found. Family is very important to us.

I am looking forward to all the fun and memories that the upcoming school year will bring! In 3rd grade, as students learn and grow, we will engage in fun and innovative activities that align with Common Core standards. We will implement Eureka math
which include: learning how to multiply and divide, understanding fractions, talking about shapes, and analyzing numbers.  Let's just say you will be wonderful math detectives by the end of your third grade year.

My classroom is set up to promote safety, academic growth, and positive outcomes. I feel every child is a learner and grows at his or her own individual pace. Our classroom will foster that learning environment. If you have any questions or concerns Please, feel free to e-mail me at
