Biography

Niccole has enjoyed the field of early childhood for many years. During her undergraduate work, she gained the knowledge and skills required of a professional early childhood educator and enjoyed a study abroad trip to Costa Rica while learning about the Spanish language as well as coaching the varsity cheer team at the local high school. Throughout the completion of her Master's degree, Niccole applied her coursework as an early childhood classroom teacher at the university's lab school. She then worked as a college instructor and graduate research assistant and was an active recipient of the King-Chávez-Parks Future Faculty Fellowship during her doctoral career. Niccole has been teaching at Ferris State University since 2014 and especially enjoys contributing to the growth of the Early Childhood Education program, as she believes educating and caring for young children is the most important work that shapes the future of our society.
