Mrs. Nicole Esposito Dobbs
Welcome to the 6th Grade Science Webpage!
My name is Mrs. Dobbs and I am excited to be your child's teacher. I began my education career in the local government sector with Essex County Parks, and continued my career as a research ecologist with several non-profit and state organizations. During this time, I worked to bring citizen science to students to help them better understand climate change. In 2019-2020, my lesson plans about using data to study climate change were sent to First Lady of New Jersey Tammy Murphy and helped the NJDOE bring Climate Science and Climate Change into the classroom as part of our new state science curriculum.
