Hello A-Team Families, my name is Nico! I was born and raised (and still live in) Pacifica California, which serves as a healthy foundation to my professional career as an educator. My goal is to bring my sense of community with me to anywhere I work. Since graduating from college, I had been working with kids as a side job to my then broadcasting career, but slowly those two would begin to shift in priority. I made the choice to fully pursue education and childcare in 2015.
During the 2020-21 school year, I served as full year distance learning educator for 4th grade. Although it stands as an anomaly in terms of experiences for teachers, I gleaned a lot of knowledge from that year which I carried into next fall. In the 2021-22 school year, I was an ELA, Science, and Social Studies teacher for 4th and 5th grade in a dual immersion program. That year was just as fruitful with wisdom as the year before, and come the summer of 2022, I made the choice to leave public school education and continue to work with children on my own terms. As of October 2022, I have been teaching elementary school children my own curriculum of reading, writing, and public speaking.
