Mrs. Nichols:

Hi my name is April Nichols and I am so excited to be teaching full day kindergarten!  I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona and moved to Queen Creek in 2003.  I am married and have two amazing children, Bryan 18 and Maddie 13.  I attended the University of Phoenix where I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  I love to go camping, fishing, and to the beach.  I look forward to a fantastic year with Skyline Ranch Kindergartners!

Mrs. Bilsky:

My name is Jil Bilsky. I am entering my 16th year of teaching. I have a Bachelor's degree in Earth Science and a Master's degree in Elementary Education. I received both degrees at California University of Pennsylvania located outside of my home town near Pittsburgh, PA. I reside in Gilbert with my husband of 16 years and our 6 year old daughter.

Ms. Ake:

My name is Melissa Ake . I was born and raised in Arizona. I attended Northern Arizona University where I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education and my Masters in Early Childhood Education with a Reading Specialist Endorsement. This will be my seventh year as a kindergarten teacher and my eight year teaching. I'm excited to be a Bulldog this year at Skyline Ranch. When I am not at work I enjoy running, hiking, being an Aunt, and spending time with my family and friends. I believe that parent-teacher communication is very important. Please come to me with any questions or concerns you may have.
