Mrs. Heidi Nicks-Tambasco

Grade 3 Teacher

Phone: (780)467-5557

Heidi Nicks-Tambasco cannot believe she is fifty years old and has been teaching with EIPS for twenty-five years! Just yesterday, it seems, she was a fourth grader sitting in the classroom and contemplating turning a decade! While passing through the labyrinth of life, she is thankful to have her loving parents, husband and three kids to support her. One day in 2018, Heidi decided she needed some new cheese…some Davidson Creek cheese…So she set out to on a journey to find it. It was a bit scary at first leaving the old cheese behind, but once she found Davidson Creek cheese, it was tastier and more diverse than she could have ever imagined! Heidi learned a valuable lesson. Change is transformative. Heidi feels blessed to have the privilege to be a teacher. Each child is special and valuable. She receives so much joy teaching and learning alongside her students. Literacy is her passion and sharing stories with her students is the best cheese ever! She will savour this new adventure.
