Teacher Nicole is excited to be teaching the University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool’s 3-5s Class starting in fall 2019. She received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Bradley University and spent a number of years performing and singing in musical theatre productions. After years of working in the non-profit fundraising world, she discovered the joys of teaching preschoolers. She has worked in various Northeast Seattle preschools for the past 7 years bringing music and storytelling to many young students. She believes preschool should be a fun, engaging environment where children are encouraged to play while learning to cooperate with others and starting to cultivate their independent skills. Through collaboration with parents, she hopes to instill a lifelong love of learning.
