Congratulations to Ms. Nichole Boger, Nazareth Area Middle School (NAMS) Music teacher, for being recognized by her colleagues as someone who always lends an open ear, goes above and beyond to help students and staff, and never turns anyone away in need of assistance. She continuously goes out of her way daily to inspire and encourage her students in many ways! She is an incredible music teacher and advises or co-advises multiple clubs, including Girl Empowerment, Guitar Club, GSA, MC Live, and many others. Nichole is selfless, kind, passionate about music, and just an all-around inspiration to others.
When asked about Nichole, Dr. Bauder, NAMS Principal, stated, “Nichole is a fantastic teacher with a huge heart. Her ability to connect with students and provide them with opportunities to learn, grow, and challenge themselves to leave their comfort zone is truly unique. Nichole advocates for students who do not always feel they are heard.” Mr. Fidelibus, NAMS Assistant Principal, regards Nichole as one of the school’s most prominent voices for our students, especially our female student body. She is highly active in providing our students with opportunities to be heard, have a voice, express themselves, or offer social opportunities for students with common interests. No matter whom you ask, they all say how lucky we are to have Nichole on the NAMS staff.
Our school district has employed Ms. Boger since 2016. She is a 2011 graduate of Parkland High School and a 2015 graduate of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her degree in Music Education. Nichole lives in the Allentown School District with her husband, Lucas Cook. Her hobbies include cooking and whitewater kayaking. On behalf of myself, the Administration, and the Board of School Directors, I would like to thank Nichole for her hard work, dedication, and the many hats she wears to service the Blue and White.
