Mrs. Nichelle Jinks

Hi!  I am Nichelle Jinks and I am a fourth grade teacher at Heritage Elementary School.  I have loved teaching since day one.  Along with 1st, I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.  

I am a life long resident of Richlands, NC.  I have 2 children, Keagan & Elijah and a cute little dog, Harvey.  I love to travel.  I have been to Greece, France, Germany, the Bahamas, and I plan to add to this list as soon as I can.  I enjoy everything water related: fishing, crabbing, clamming, etc. I spend a great deal of time camping on the river in Sneads Ferry doing the things I like.

I currently hold a BS in Criminal Justice from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  I am licensed and certified to teach k-6 and have been teaching for many years.  

Professional mission statement: As an educator, I will support and nurture students as they grow, and learn. Through teaching I will endeavor to appreciate each child's individual character. My perfect classroom features happy, healthy children who are eager to learn and preparing to lead. 



I communicate through Class Dojo. Please let me know if you need any assistance signing up.
