Love what we do?

In addition to our education features, we’ll be kicking off a series of stories highlighting how parents, students, and educators are adapting to the impact of COVID-19 on education. If this is important to you, please consider donating to our education reporting fund.

My name is Niki. I met Mike when I was in 3rd grade and he was in 5th. We grew up as friends and dated in high school. Life happened, and we went our separate ways for a few years. Then, we ran into each other one night at a bar neither of us really went to before. I knew that night that I couldn’t let him walk away. Now, we’re happily married, have 3 children and a grandchild with another on the way.
