Nicole is a single mother of twins. When she started working with CLUES, her dream of becoming a teacher was just that: a dream.

But she and her employment counselors wrote that as a goal and she started working toward it: studying, working, attending to her family – always meeting the program’s requirements and never giving up. In May Nicole obtained her Bachelor’s degree from Metro State University. Out of MFIP, she is now teaching Geometry at Roosevelt High School.
