Staff Spotlight: Nikky Tolde

At Austin Public Schools, our mission is to inspire, empower, and accelerate every one of our learners, and we know that the only way for us to reach this goal is through the efforts of all our incredibly hard-working staff.  

In this week’s Staff Spotlight, we’re highlighting Sumner Elementary School music and Advanced Academics teacher Nikky Tolde.

"Mrs. Tolde goes above and beyond for every student she works with. She has impacted thousands of children with her work in music, theater, MacPhail, and the Austin community. She has dedicated her life to making sure each child knows how special they are."
