Ms. Nicole Keener

Nicole Keener is very fortunate to be able to teach art!  She’s originally from Maine and moved to Colorado about 15 years ago.  Nicole lives with a plethora of houseplants and her dog Rascal, who lives up to his name.  Nicole loves  taking advantage of everything Colorado has to offer.  In her spare time she climbs, does yoga, and paddle boards.  This summer she accomplished a life goal by climbing The Diamond which is the technical rock face of Long’s Peak!


Nicole is new to High Plains this year and looks forward to collaborating with all of you!  She appreciates the creativity and unique views that all students bring into the art room.  Nicole is excited to be part of a STEAM school and is looking forward to innovating in a project based learning environment.
