Hi there! My name is Nicole, and I am a graduate student at Teachers College-Columbia University. I am currently working towards my Master's Degree in Elementary Inclusive Education. I work as a Student Teacher in a public elementary school in an ICT classroom. I was a teaching assistant and Pre-K teacher for 5 years during my undergraduate career. My past experience at a day-care has given me a great overall background in hands on experience from infants to 6-year-olds. Additionally, I have worked as a paraprofessional and instructional aid for students with special needs. I am currently CPR, CPI, and DASA certified. Due to being employed by pubic schools in both New Jersey and New York, I have completed a criminal background and fingerprint scanning for approval to work for the DOE. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me as I look forward to hearing from you!
