Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Nicole DeRung and I am a Special Education teacher at Jefferson. I was born in, and spent most of my life in Minneapolis, MN. I have been teaching elementary and special education for seven years. The first four years of my teaching career were in New Orleans, LA. I have been back in Minneapolis and teaching in the MPS district for three years. Prior to teaching, I worked in accounting and small business management. I am a mother of a little boy. In my freetime, I listen to music, read, and entertain a two-year old. I love traveling to visit family and friends. Most importantly, I love teaching and I care for each student and each family like they were my own. I look forward to working with you and your child.
