Meet the Teacher

          My name is Ms. Nicole Shagi and I am a First Grade teacher.  This is my 7th year teaching at St. Agnes Cathedral School.  I was born and raised on Long Island, New York.  I went to Molloy College and received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education.  I then continued my education at Molloy College and received my Master’s degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).  From the time I could remember, it has always been my dream to become a teacher.  After coming home from elementary school I would play school for hours at home with my sisters.  I am honored that my dream came true!  My philosophy of teaching is that every student is unique and learns differently; therefore I always try my best to meet each of my student’s needs.  I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world!

       I enjoy being outdoors and traveling!  During the summer I spend most of my free-time at the beach and with my amazing family and friends.  I also love to cook and bake!


              I am looking forward to this school year!
