Nichole is originally from the United States, but has spent the last 20 years living and working in Beijing, China. Nichole has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and followed this by qualifying to teach in the Early Years age groups. She began her career at the International Montessori School of Beijing in 2001 and joins us from the founding team of Dulwich College Beijing’s Foundation Stage, where she was most recently a Nursery Class Teacher.
Nichole is passionate about providing the best start in every child’s learning journey. Last year her very first pupils graduated and went on to prestigious universities and she has felt it a privilege to have planted the seeds of that success. It is her belief that positive relationships are at the heart and foundation of building a love of learning and is committed to supporting the growth and development of every unique student.
With her family, Nichole continues to enjoy exploring the many diverse parts of China and is delighted to now have Shanghai as a home base to discover its surrounding areas. Her favourite pastimes are photographing her various travels and trying new Chinese teas, especially Oolongs.
