I hold a BA in Biology from the University of California, Riverside, and possess a Multiple Subject K-12 and Single subject Science Credentials. I began my Waldorf career 20 years ago at the Waldorf School of Orange County CA., where I earned my Waldorf certification. I later taught in various Waldorf Charter and private Schools in California and also worked for many years in a Waldorf School in Israel. I love Nature!

“Ms. Nicholson is clearly committed to the Waldorf philosophy of “educating the whole child.” Under her guidance, I have seen students with significant challenges make tremendous strides in their emotional regulation, social aptitude, classroom behavior, and academic confidence. What’s more, Ms. Nicholson’s students absolutely adore her! She’s a great storyteller and always finding fun and creative activities to enrich her classroom. Overall, Ms. Nicholson makes learning a joy for her lucky pupils. “
