Nicole’s work at ERS includes district-level resource maps and strategic school design. She worked as part of the Baltimore team to create school design "prototypes" for the district’s high schools and to identify districtwide opportunities for resource shifts based on the School System 20/20 diagnostic. She also worked on the Palm Beach team’s year-long resource map to help the district align their resource allocation with their strategic goals. Most recently, Nicole led an internal project focused on analyzing implications of the new ESSA regulations with a focus on equity in order to best support districts’ adoption of these requirements.
Prior to joining ERS, Nicole served as a Dean of Curriculum and Instruction for grades K1, K2, and 1st at UP Academy Holland, a turnaround elementary school in Boston. Before that, she was an Instructional Coach for Mastery Charter Schools in Philadelphia and, before that, a Leadership Resident at Success Academy in New York City. Nicole previously taught both Kindergarten and 2nd grade at public and charter schools in New York City.
Outside of ERS, Nicole loves spending time exploring the Boston area with her husband and finding new ways to make her infant son giggle.
