Nicole Butler
3rd Grade ELA Teacher
Ms. Nicole Michelle Butler is the third grade English Language Arts teacher at Baker Heights Elementary School.  She also teaches Social Studies. Butler has served as a teacher and reading interventionist at the City of Baker Schools for the last nine years.  
Ms. Butler is a life-long resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  She is the oldest of three siblings.  Butler says she has always wanted to be a teacher.  To pursue her dream, she attended and graduated from Southern University. 
Butler was selected as the Teacher of the Year because of the many contributions she has made to Baker Heights.  Her love for reading and to helping students learn to read is evident in her dedication.  Butler arrives early to prepare for the day ahead, makes her copies, and gathers all her materials ready to receive her students daily.  She rarely misses a day out of school, and she works tirelessly from "bell to bell."  When asked to receive other students or to help in any way during the school day, she does so graciously.  
Congratulations to Ms. Butler, BHES Teacher of the Year, 2022-23.
