Myers, Nikki

Academy Director

Mrs. Myers has a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Gifted Education. Her coursework focused on the teacher training process for gifted education, and she was the creator and editor of The Gifted Gallery, a regional, free e-newletter for the staff, students, and families, from January 2007 to Summer 2010. She has taught hundreds of children in grades preK-5, coached middle school girls’ volleyball, been the director of a local children’s volunteer and performance program, worked as a social studies curriculum specialist, and was an original Steering Committee Member, Board Member, and curriculum design specialist for the approval of AcademyACL as a charter school in 2009. As the Founding Academy Director, a parent, family member, and educator of many gifted people, she appreciates the unique local niche that AcademyACL fills, and its excellent team of staff and board members who bring this program to life. She loves to spend time with her family, read voraciously and watch television mysteries. In January 2014, Mrs. Myers was inducted into the Colorado Academy of Educators for the Gifted, Talented and Creative. She is delighted to have the opportunity to work with AcademyACL students, teachers, and families to meet this unique vision and mission.
