Nicole JohnsonWelcome to Waukee Elementary! I am in beginning my 12th year serving as principal at Waukee Elementary and feel very fortunate to work with such an amazing group of teachers, students, and parents!

After graduating from the University of Northern Iowa, I began my education career right here in the Waukee Community School District in 2002. I taught for a total of four years, first at Waukee Elementary and then Walnut Hills Elementary. I received my MSE in Education Leadership from Drake University in 2006. I then served as the assistant principal at both Waukee Elementary and Walnut Hills Elementary for two years before becoming the principal at Waukee Elementary in 2008. I completed my EdS in Educational Administration at Drake University in 2014 and continue to enjoy my role at Waukee Elementary!

Living and working in the district gives me a great sense of pride. My husband also works in the district and we are very thankful to be part of this great community! My son is a 12th grader at Waukee High School and my daughter is a 6th grader at Waukee Middle School. I also have two step-children who are in 6th grade and 8th grade.
