When Kim Nickel walked into a sixth-grade classroom at Heritage Elementary School in 1989, she reminded herself to be confident. Not only had these kids been in school together since kindergarten, but for the first five weeks of the school year they had a string of substitute teachers. So Nickel drew upon her experience student teaching at Vinewood Elementary School under Nancy Scott to set up and manage her first classroom.

"I still use things today that I learned from her," said Nickel, a fifth-grade GATE cluster teacher at Reese Elementary School. In fact, Nickel took mental notes on her teachers all through grade school in Sacramento.
