My name is Nikki Desbien. This year begins my 25th year of teaching with this being the start of my 18th year in Mustang. I am the EL Specialist for Centennial Elementary and Mustang Trails Elementary.  I have also taught at Norman Christian Academy and Moore Public Schools.  I have taught kindergarten, 5th grade Math/Science, 2nd grade and Title 1 Math. I completed my masters of education with an emphasis in Bilingual Education/Teaching English as a Second Language in 2014. 

A little about me personally-I am married with one son.  I love to travel! I love nature and usually my travels involve some aspect where I'm outside. I also like to work in my flower beds and read.


About the EL Program

The English Learner (EL) program is a program that supports English learners who are bilingual. We focus on the four domains of language (reading, writing, listening and speaking) in our lessons. Some students attend classes 2-3 times a week. While English is the language of focus in our classes, we do discuss native languages and celebrate our cultures!
