Hello! My name is Niki Alicea, and I love my job as a Reading Specialist at Chambers Hill Elementary School! I have over 20 years experience teaching children K-8th grade. Prior to coming to Central Dauphin in 2014, I was a Reading Specialist/Instructional Facilitator in Harrisburg School District for 15 years. I thoroughly enjoy keeping up with current research around education and hold advanced degrees/certifications in the areas of Reading, Reading Recovery (1st grade), Wilson Reading System, ESL (K-12), Secondary English (7-12), Library (K-12), Principal (K-12) and School Counseling (K-12). I especially enjoy bringing my experiences in teaching literacy to Chambers Hill to help all of my students develop a life-long love of reading and learning.
My husband and I live in the Harrisburg area with our two children. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, traveling, relaxing with family and friends, and cheering for the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Giants!!
I strongly believe an open line of communication between school and home helps tremendously to support your child’s academic success. I encourage you to contact me throughout the year with any questions, comments, or concerns. I am looking forward to having a rewarding and productive year of learning and growing together here at Chambers Hill Elementary!
