Life long learner and forever curious, Jennifer Nicklas has been teaching art since 2006. She has a Masters in Art Education and Leadership from Boston University and a Bachelor's in Education from Northern Arizona University. Jennifer started her teaching career in the U.S. but took a leap of faith and moved overseas in 2012. Jennifer moved into a PYP Coordinator position in 2019. She enjoys collaborating with teams of teachers, working on strategic goals, and developing parent partnerships. Jennifer has experience teaching all ages, but her area of expertise is secondary education. She has helped many students prepare successful portfolios for university and has a background in a variety of curricular frameworks including IB (PYP, MYP, DP), AP, and Common Core. Her favorite part of teaching internationally is being a part of the community outside the classroom and building positive school culture. When she's not teaching, Jennifer keeps herself very busy with creating art, writing, and having adventures with her family.
