Position at CGL:  Current: Director, Past: Preschool Teacher, Toddler Teacher

Why you choose to teach at CGL:  CGL is the best of the best. I can’t imagine working in another school that welcomes children and families to learn and wonder quite the way we do here at Children’s garden.


Favorite moment in the classroom:  In my first weeks at CGL one of the young learners arrived early at school and rather than greet me with a simple hello he wrapped his arms around me and said “Good Morning Ms. Nicky, make a wish!” Now I like to start each morning with a wish for the day.


Hobbies and interests:  When I am not chasing a toddler at home, I’m skiing. When the snow isn’t flying you can find me rooting for the Red Sox and learning to bake at high altitude.
