Nicole is currently working on the Baltimore team to create school design ‘prototypes’ for the district’s high schools and to identify districtwide opportunities and priorities for resource deployment based on the System 20/20 diagnostic. She is also working on the Palm Beach team’s year-long resource map to help the district align their resource allocation with their strategic goals. Previously Nicole worked with the Charlotte team which helped the district redesign their student-weighted staffing model.
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 enjoys painting, reading, travel, exploring the Boston area, and eating. She is particularly happy if she can find a way to combine several of these activities at once.
