Hi! My name is Nicole and you’ll get to see me as an after school care supervisor on Mondays and Tuesdays. I feel strongly that education is a lifelong exploration, and feel that’s why I’m so drawn to the Montessori community.

My biggest passion over the past 6 years has been yoga. I have studied and taught in Hawaii, Montreal and Vancouver. Over the last year I committed to a 500-hour training which I just completed over the summer. I spent a few weeks in August in the Okanagan, swimming and paddleboarding in Kalamalka lake. It was really beautiful. I also got to watch my best friend get married and it was a fun, laughter-filled time spent with many of my closest friends. What a great way to end the summer!

My goal over the next year is to keep studying in any way that will expand my knowledge of teaching yoga and supporting children in a variety of environments. I recognize the joy of working with children and appreciate the lessons that they so truthfully gift to us!
