April Nicolas

April Nicolas is a high school teacher with a soft spot for middle school learners. A Resource teacher since 2006, she firmly believes if you can support a student's math discovery during middle school, high school math will be accessible and no longer feared.

Tackling and breaking down arithmetic and pre-Algebra skills with joy and not anxiety involves some patience and connectedness to everyday objects and reality. Making students see that math is not a faraway concept, but something tangible and real is her goal.  When not working with students, you may find her hiking in East Bay parks with her Boston Terrier, Linus, and her husband, Vernon, cheering for the San Jose Earthquakes, UCLA Bruins, and SF Giants.
