Teacher Nicole is our lead Preschool Teacher for the Suns & Stars classes in Dundee. Nicole joined the Good Life Preschool in the Fall of 2020 and brings a calming energy to the classroom.

Nicole has worked with children for the past seven years and has her Associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. She has taught children ages infant-8 years old, ranging from childcare to Elementary assisting in math and reading skills. "My experiences have taught me about development in every stage of young childhood and I have become adaptable and able to be in any classroom. I enjoy preschool because children have gained independence and are excited to learn everything they can about themselves and others around them. I believe a part of who children are is because of their family and a child’s learning is teamwork through teachers and their homes." 

Outside of the classroom, Teacher Nicole enjoys spending my time with her two children family and friends. Her favorite places are the beach and the movies. Nicole also loves to be in a tractor on her family’s crop farm or in Central Oregon on her grandparent's ranch riding four wheelers or working cattle. "Agriculture and children are who I am, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!"
