The Hip Hop


Nocola  received her doctorate degree in Teacher Leadership in 2011, but chose to remain in the classroom where she continues to share her love of learning with some of her favorite people. During her  30-year career, she has taught all  elementary grades levels from  first to fifth. Her favorite time of the school day has always been watching her students get whisked away into their own imaginations as she reads aloud to them.  She has read countless picture and chapter books to her students and thought the time had come to write some books of her own.

Nocola and her husband Quincy are literally transforming their backyard into a mini- homestead, which is the inspiration for several upcoming books. They currently raise honeybees and chickens.

During the spring of 2020, during the height of the Covid 19 pandemic, The Hip Hop Homestead was born. We decided to start a backyard homestead to relieve some of the stress brought on by the lock-down. Listening to music while working on projects outside was just what the doctor ordered. Our spirits were lifted, and our creativity was ignited. Many books and songs  have been inspired by our family time
