Hello! I am Nicholas Bonney and I have been working with children of all ages and abilities for 16 years. I started in a low income recreation center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. From there I expanded my work into after school programs, taught English in Brazil, and volunteered at the Brooklyn Free School in its opening year. From 2010-2015 I taught art/music and theater to children on the autism spectrum through the VSA North Fourth Art Center.
Most recently I was the Director of the k-12 program at the Patchwork School in Louisville Colorado. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and I am currently working on a Masters Degree in Education at CSU.
As an educator, I love to give students the space and freedom to become themselves. Observing the growth of my students socially, emotionally and academically is a beautiful thing to watch.
As a New Mexican native, I have a passion for Native American and Mexican culture. My goal is to share my educational experience and my passions with students and their families to create a vibrant community that recognizes diversity awareness and cultures from around the world.
