Nicole is delighted to be returning for her sixth year at RDS.  As the Grade 7 & 8 Program Coordinator, Nicole plays an integral role in assisting our future graduates to become self-managed learners and leaders, and in facilitating student-led community engagement initiatives at RDS.  In addition, Nicole is our Grade 8 Homeroom Teacher, Middle School Language Arts Specialist,  Social Media Team Coordinator and co-leads our RDS Prefect Program.

Nicole received a Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, and an Honours Bachelor Degree in English and Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University.  Prior to teaching in Toronto, Nicole spent five years teaching and travelling abroad in Thailand, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.  Travelling and learning have always been a passion for Nicole, and most recently she became a Cohort 21 graduate, a Level 1 Google Certified Educator, and travelled to California to attend to Nueva Design Institute.

When Nicole is not teaching, she enjoys travelling and spending time with family & friends.  Nicole is looking forward to another outstanding year of teaching and learning within the RDS Community!
