Mrs. Nicole Ochs

Greetings Spotswood Families and Friends,

I am excited to serve as your Principal for the 2019-20 school year! 

Let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up in Saint Louis, Missouri. As a military spouse, I have had educational experiences around the country in Missouri, North Carolina, California and most recently Virginia. My family and I have lived in Virginia since 2014 and for the past five years I was an assistant principal for Stafford County Schools. I have three daughters who all attend Spotsylvania County Schools. 

I hope that these experiences along with my passion for teaching and learning will allow me to be a positive contribution to the Spotswood community. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email at nochs@spotsylvania.k12.va.us I look forward to working with you this school year to help each and every child have a great school experience.

Nicole Ochs, Principal
