Location CA, United States
Introduction With her feet “in the trenches,” and her head in “the cloud,” Nicole is a fifth grade teacher whose specialty is “creativity and technology in education.” Because she spends so much time with children both at school and at home, she offers a fresh perspective on how to integrate digital literacy skills into the curriculum, and is a strong advocate of introducing them at an early age. Nicole teaches technology workshops for educators both inside and outside of her district, is a MERIT instructor at the Krause Center for Innovation, and serves on the board for her local history museum. Nicole is proud to call Cupertino her hometown, but now lives and teaches in nearby Pleasanton. In her free time, this California native can often be found wandering around her home state taking pictures, making videos, traveling back and forth to Brazil, and hanging out on her favorite social media sites where she loves to collaborate, teach, and learn from other creative, like-minded educators.
