Hello! My name is Nikki Scarpelli, I am originally from Roswell, Georgia, and this is my first year as a graduatestudent at the University of Georgia. I received my Bachelor's Degree in May 2012 in Mathematics from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and I am currently pursuing my Masters in the Art of Education in Secondary Mathematics. Most would describe me as a very energetic, outgoing, and enthusiastic person. Since I was twelve years old I have always aspired to be a high school math teacher. My hobbies include working out, hanging out with friends, shopping, and traveling. My family is a huge part of my life, and I don't know where I'd be today without them. I have one older brother, Dominic, who is twenty five years old and my biggest mentor. I love to visit new places. one of my favorite places I've been to is probably Belize or the Dominican Republic. I am a huge movie buff and quote movies religiously. I have a 4 year old dog named Wiley, he is a black lab and pitbull mix. Two of my favorite pasttimes are photography and cooking. Italian food is probably my favorite. And just a fun fact about me, I've been skydiving and I plan to go again soon! That's pretty much all there is to know about me, if you want to know anything else, feel free to ask!
