Niblock, Karen
6th Grade Teacher

Hi!  My name is Karen Niblock and I have been teaching at Nevada Middle School since 2001.  I graduated with a B. A. degree from the University of Iowa and then was a stay-at-home mom for most of 17 years.  When my family relocated to Nevada in 2001 I began as a Teacher’s Associate with a blind student.  After he left the Middle School I left the Middle School for one year and earned my 5-12 teaching certificate from Iowa State University.  I taught the GOALS program for 3 years before joining the 6th grade team in 2008.  I began as the High School Drama Director in 2005 directing two productions each year.  I also coached Middle School Cheerleading for 12 years and High School Speech for 3 years.  

I have four grown children who provide me with plenty to do outside of school.  I love to spend time traveling, reading, working all kinds of puzzles and learning new things.  I am on the AIW Anchor Team, the Technology Integration Team and the Technology Committee for the Middle School.  

My passion is developing learning strategies that meet the needs of today’s students.  I believe strongly that we must engage students in order to deepen their understanding and that the use of technology is vital to that goal. I earned my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction in 2012 from Viterbo University in Wisconsin and I was one of twelve middle school teachers to complete the 2014 Summer Science Academy for Middle School Teachers at Iowa State University.
