Hello!  My name is Nichole Dillner; I am the Math Specialist at Crooked Lake Elementary.  This is my sixth year at Crooked Lake and I am excited to be back!   Crooked Lake is an incredible community to be a part of, with teachers, staff, and families who truly care about eachother and our students.  In my current position I get to work with students in kindergarten through fifth grade.  It is so fun to watch each student's mathematical understanding progress from year to year.  I am also fortunate to support classroom teachers.
    If I can be of any help to you as you support your child in the area of mathematics, please feel free to contact me at nichole.dillner@ahschools.us
