Mrs. Nicole Kirkley

As a Kershaw County native and Blaney Elementary graduate, I am honored to lead the Blaney Elementary School family! I have a passion for students at this level and always put relationships first - I promise to treat your children as if they are my own while maintaining high expectations for them both academically and socially. 

I received my Bachelor's degree in Middle Level Education from Winthrop University. I taught 8th grade science and 7th grade ELA for 5 years. I then received my Masters Degree in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix. I have previously been an assistant administrator at Westwood High School in Richland 2 for two years and assistant principal at Camden Middle School for 3 years. 

I am married to my high school sweetheart and together we have a daughter, Kate, a son, Rhett, and a dog-son, Bo. We live at Lake Wateree and spend most of our time on the water with family and friends!

I am looking forward to a successful year!
