Nicole Hoyt is a teacher at Newbury Elementary School in Howell. Miss Hoyt has been a teacher for 10 years, spending time teaching in the Preschool Disabled Program, Integrated Preschool Program, 5th grade resource center and currently teaching kindergarten. While dismissal is at 3:15pm, it's not uncommon to see Miss Hoyt's car in the parking lot until well after 5pm as she prepares the next day's lessons. According to her nominating sponsor, Dr. James Quinn (principal), "Miss Hoyt is a gem. She never has a bad day, and if she does...you'd never know it!" Each child gets the attention the need and deserve out of Miss Hoyt who praises their strengths and tackles their weaknessess aggressively. She also keeps parents informed of classroom activity by using social media like Twitter which parents can follow so they can see in real-time just what is going on while their children are in her class. Nicole Hoyt, we welcome you to the Teachers Who Rock Class of 2014.
