has over 15 years of elementary teaching experience in New Zealand, Vietnam and currently at NIST International School in Thailand. Nicky holds a Bachelor's degree in Education and Sociology and has recently completed the IB Leadership Series. She collaborates globally in a variety of ways, such as being a member of the Advisory Board for The Wonderment and as guest speaker for a Teaching as a Profession class at the University of Washington. Additionally, she has shared her thoughts on global education at the 2016 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference, in Denver, and after presenting her Conceptual Co-teaching model at both the IB Annual conference and EARCOS in 2016; she has now developed this into a two-day workshop. Conceptual Co-teaching brings a unique spotlight on multi-teacher collaboration, de-privatization of practice, and equity within the international classroom. Nicky is known as a creative, conceptual thinker yet her extensive classroom experience brings a practicality to her educational consulting. She tweets as @bourgeois1
