All About Me!
My name is Nicole Kincaide and this is my first year in Coupland. I am so excited to become a Coupland Cowboy. I am starting my 16th year in education. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Education from St. Edward’s University in Austin. I have taught Pre-K, Kinder, 1st, 2nd, Art, P.E., and ESL. This is my first year as a part of the school counseling program. I am finishing up my Master’s program for Counseling and Development at Lamar University and will be graduating in December 2023.
I am married and have two sons. My oldest son has graduated from TSTC in Hutto and is working as an industrial assistant engineer. My youngest son is in his last year of middle school and will be moving on to high school next year in Thrall. My husband is a master electrician and works as a senior superintendent for a construction company. We love the outdoors and traveling.
I am so happy to be here and am looking forward to helping all students through their learning journey.
