Hello there! My name is Tammy Nicholson. I was born and raised in Ellijay and I am married to a precious Man of God, David Nicholson, whom I love very much! God has given us two precious children as gifts: Daniel and MaryGrace! My family attends Liberty Baptist church in Ellijay where my husband is currently pastor. I was gloriously saved by God’s marvelous grace and baptized when I was 10 years old at Riverhill Baptist Church.

My education and experience consists of a Bachelor’s Degree in Business
Administration from North Georgia College in 1988 with a major in accountingand a minor in Fine Arts History. After working in public accounting for almost ten years, I returned to North Georgia College & State University to
follow what I feel is my true calling, to teach children. I received the requirements for teacher certification and I became a Certified Teacher in Early Childhood Education in 1999. In the fall of 1999 I began working at Ellijay Primary School. I worked there five years, one year as a resource
teacher for reading and math then four years as a Second Grade teacher. In 2003 while working I received a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood from Piedmont College. In 2004 God blessed David and I with a son, Daniel. Feeling the need to stay at home with our little one I resigned from
teaching. In 2005 I received a Specialist’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont College while staying at home. Our little girl, MaryGrace, was sent to us in 2007 and I continued to stay at home with her until 2010 when I felt that God was calling me back to work. After praying about Daniel possibly attending NGCA, God gave me the opportunity to teach Kindergarten at North Georgia Christian Academy.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to work at NGCA and have my children here also. It has been such a blessing to teach about our Lord and Savior each day and be in a Christ centered environment with some wonderful people! I am looking forward to my fourth year in Kindergarten at NGCA.
