Nick is a proud Kanyen'kehà:ka and member of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte. He is a father, partner, uncle, and educator. Like many Indigenous People, coming from a family background that has been deeply impacted by colonization, sharing truth alongside messages of hope and resiliency through the vehicle of education is what interests and drives Nick.
Nick has worked in education for over 15 years in many roles including: an OCT certified teacher, a school board Indigenous Education Lead, and more recently supporting the work of Indigenous Education on a provincial level.
Grounded by the incredible support and generosity of Elders, Knowledge Keepers, community, family, and friends has allowed Nick to share space in a variety of educational settings. In life and in the education world, to move forward with a good mind, Nick has always believed that the foundation of this journey is rooted in strong relationships built on respect, understanding, and reciprocity.
