This year Nicole will be joining Meridian for her 10th year in private education. She began her work in education in 2006 with Jumpstart, a national nonprofit focused on developing literacy and language skills in low-income neighborhoods, and volunteering at schools in San Francisco and Pacifica, California. She’s worked with teeny tiny babies to big eight year olds and all the way up to high schoolers; Nicole loves learning from others at all ages and stages. She believes that building a foundation of kindness and community best supports and prepares kids and adults to ask questions and take on challenges. Nicole has attended the University Child Development School Summer Math Workshop, Responsive Classroom Elementary Core Institute, and is a 200-hour certified yoga and wellness instructor. She is looking forward to exploring Seattle with her husband and enjoys people-watching, traveling near and far, music, and movies.
