Hello Turtle Families!

My name is Nicole McInnis and I moved to Austin last year from Portland, Oregon. This will be my second year at Child’s Day. I am so excited for our year together as Turtles. It is such a fun and exciting year for this age group as they develop greater independence through self-help skills and toilet learning!

I graduated from Oregon State University with two degrees. The first degree is in Human Development and Family Sciences with a focus in Child Development while the second degree is in Education. I have always had a strong passion for helping others and I found myself drawn into the teaching field. I love to help children grow and explore the world around them. In my early teaching career, I worked with preschool aged children. This is when I developed a strong passion for this age group! Prior to moving to Austin I worked in Elementary classrooms as well as preschool classrooms. I was employed with Nike at the String Child Development Center on the World Headquarters in Beaverton where I taught children ages birth to three.

In the Turtle classroom, it is our priority to make sure each and every child feel safe, welcome, and loved. Creating an environment where a child feels this way helps them engage and learn. This year my goal will be to ensure that your children have the adequate tools to develop his or her social, cognitive, and physical abilities. The classroom will be a place where they can work on these skills while developing a love for learning, problem solving skills, creative thinking, and more!

In my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors. I have a strong love for science and nature! My goal is to instill the same love for science and learning into our classroom! I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I come from a family of four kids and many pets! I currently have one yellow Labrador who I spend most of my free time with!

This is going to be a wonderful year full of many great adventures! I am so excited to be a Turtle teacher this year!
