Meet Upper Elementary Teacher Nicole Fedorow

November 16, 2020
By Julie Strickland

What led you to become a Montessori Teacher, and how long have you been at Springmont? I became interested in Montessori after discovering that one of my best friends had been a Montessori child. She was an extraordinary adult with a mind for business, a love of the arts, and a passion for philanthropy. She had many unique attributes, and I was curious to discover how a Montessori education had helped her grow into this remarkable adult. I did some reading and talking with other people who had been Montessori children and decided that I would like to become a Montessori teacher. This is my fifth year at Springmont. 

Tell us one way you help new children feel welcomed into the community of learners? One way I help new children feel welcome in my class is by trying to discover a common interest. It could be as simple as we both love drawing or books by Judy Blume. It gives me an opportunity to show children that I see them and I am paying attention to who they are.  

What is one thing that you think defines you as a person? Creativity. I am always trying to find new ways to engage the children and I make sure my classroom inspires creativity. My students love to engage in hands-on learning through building, constructing and performing. I love to do projects that teach children but also give them the framework to develop the skills required to draw their own conclusions.
